BALLET CHECKUP

Starting from $225.00

Discover the cure to your biggest technical weaknesses in this head-to-toe ballet-style “health checkup”.

Who It's For

This course is perfect for anyone who:

  • Wants to seriously improve their technique
  • Wants to stand out in an audition setting
  • Wants to maintain their technique during a period of quarantine
  • Is returning to dance after taking time off (due to injury, vacation, pandemic, etc.)
  • Feels as if they’re “lagging behind” the rest of the class
  • Wants to brush up on their technical basics
  • Aspires to be the very best ballerina they can possibly be
Program Details

This program analyzes three of the most important attributes of a successful ballerina: posture, turnout, and the basics of technique.

To begin, you’ll have a Posture Assessment. This will pinpoint areas of your posture that are contributing to faulty technique. 

Next comes the Turnout Assessment, which will help you to discover just how much turnout you truly have (as well as how much you COULD have!).   

Your last assessment is the Technique Assessment, where a thorough analysis of your plié, tendu, and rise – the three most crucial foundational elements of ballet technique – is done. If any one of these movements are lacking in some way, then this will undoubtedly have a negative effect on your overall execution of both basic and advanced steps. In fact, common struggles with allegro, pirouettes, and adage can almost always be attributed to a problem with one of these three cornerstone elements!

Based on the results of your three assessments, you will work intensively on fixing the areas in need of improving, following a personalized program designed to specifically target your areas of weakness.
