Classical Dance Summer Series with Amanda

Explore the realm of Classical Dance from both Western and Eastern Classical Dance traditions. Structured as a Classical Ballet class with barre work and center work, this class will teach traditional Ballet technique while introducing and synthesizing elements from Armenian, Persian, and Central Asian dance styles. This series will provide students of all levels and genres an opportunity to explore and hone critical elements of line, form, and presentation -- accompanied by soaring orchestral music drawn from both Eastern and Western sources. Class will include technique and choreography, with opportunities for performance available for interested students (performing is not required). Register in class or in advance by contacting Amanda.

Tuesdays, 6:30pm-8pm August 5 through September 9

$13/class for single class $60/full series (6 weeks)

Halanda pass is accepted

Amanda trained in Classical Ballet for nearly 20 years prior to encountering raqs sharki and Near Eastern folk dance. Having then studied a wide range of Eastern dance -- across Oriental, Folkloric, and Classical genres -- for over 20 years, Amanda's "natural" style now encompasses elements from many traditions. This Classical Dance series is an expression of that personal interweaving of Eastern and Western Classical dance threads.
