Ballet History and Technique
Year 7 – 9
The ideal introductory ballet workshop.
The history and evolution of ballet will be incorporated into the teaching of this ballet technique class, adapted for various levels or experience. Students will build on their technique and ballet vocabulary throughout the class to culminate in the learning of three pieces of adapted repertoire from different eras.
Ballet Creation and Analysis
Year 10 – 12
Unpack the detail behind creation.
Students will explore choreographic intent through the analysis of both traditional classical ballet literal storytelling and modern ballet abstract portrayal. Students will learn a piece of repertoire and then create their own movement sequence based on stimulus from Queensland Ballet productions.
