SUPPLEMENTAL CLASSES

PERFORMANCE DEVELOPMENT

This "wheel" approach class features acting, contemporary, and conditioning (II and III only) taught in rotating blocks of several weeks during the year. This class prepares students for the skills required of our dancers in story-telling and gospel-sharing presentations at Doxa.

Acting involves emotional expression, stage presence, and character development through numerous technical and improvisational exercises. If Doxa is presenting a story-ballet in the current season, students will study characters from that biblical story and explore the process of empathizing with a character in order to portray their reality through dance.

Conditioning combines pilates, yoga, cardio, and strengthening exercises to tone and develop a dancer's core, turnout, and proper alignment. Features technique building exercises of the Progressing Ballet Technique by Marie Walton-Mahon.

Contemporary explores non-classical dance techniques which are often incorporated into Doxa story ballets.

I - 45 min class (Daisies), II and III - 1 hour class (Lilies - Orchids)

Season Tuition: +$80/year, +$10/month added to technique level classes

T-Shirt Color: ANY solid color, no graphics
