Class / Camp Description

In this special workshop we invite professional male dancers from the community to partner our student dancers in the fun and elegant work of pas de deux classwork and choreography from Tennessee Ballet Theater's Clara & the Nutcracker. The partnering class will be held for two of the workshop days. The instructor will start with the basics and move to more advanced moves including walking and bowing, pirouettes, basic lifts and advanced lifts. Everyone will show some of the steps they have learned in the partnering at the end of the workshop. Dancers will learn partnering choreography from the beautiful and tragic Romeo and Juliet ballet, as well as Nutcracker choreography for auditions that are different from the first Nutcracker workshop. Each day begins with ballet class where dancers will hone their technique with the elegant art of French and Russian classical ballet that emphasizes beautiful hands, arms and head movements, big jumps and multiple turns. In addition students have pointe work (or pre-pointe), and the classical choreography. Each workshop culminates in a final performance that will feature Romeo and Juliet selections, and dances such as the Doll, Clara solo & pas de deux, Snow Queen, and Dew Drop Fairy, Russian, Spanish and Chinese, from the annual Clara & the Nutcracker at the Cannon Center. A performance will be held on the last day of the workshop, at 5:30pm in the studio. Instructors Alyssa Abbas, Mary Van Dyke, Erin Walter Beautiful Romeo and Juliet Scenes
