Basic Classical Ballet Class. This course, offered in the Fall semester to the beginning (Singers who Dance) MTP students, is designed to build core strength, balance, center, co-ordination and flexibility in order to create well-rounded, strong dancers in a musical theater vocabulary. Through daily exercises, all MTP Singers who Dance practice a logical progression of dance exercise based on Classical Ballet technique, moving from Barre work to center practice, to build their understanding of physical center alignment, addressing their ability to move away from and back to their center and work on muscle strength and flexibility. This will teach them to walk, turn and jump. Students may take this course up to three times.
This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
