Class content is based on the work of Canadian Dance Teachers Association ,and, The Royal Academy of Dance. Class starts with Barre exercises which prepare students for more dance movements in the centre. All movements have been modified for the more mature student and participants are encouraged to work to their own level of ability .In the centre we work on areas balance and classical footwork. Dance terminology and history is also included. The slower controlled movements in this class work on posture, balance ,coordination and grace. The faster footwork will help with build breath control and get the heart rate going. The classical music is good for the soul ,and, by the end of the class you feel as though you are floating on a cloud. Soft Ballet shoes are recommended .
Instructor: Joyce Reddy has 60 years of teaching experience, C.D.T.A., R.A.D., I.S.T.D., B.A.T.D., I.D.M.A.
