Intermediate Pointe Class with Roni Mahler (non-pointe dancers welcome)
Looking to enhance or rekindle your relationship with pointe work?
When: Saturdays 1pm-2:15pm EST / 10am-11:15am PST
(starting October 10th)
What: Full barre (designed to be done in the shoes) plus additional pointe-focused exercises (to be done at the barre or in the center). Class is geared towards dancers with some experience on pointe, and will be delivered in a thorough yet flexible way, to support the development of your technique using pointe not just as a goal, but as a tool. You might be interested in:
returning to pointe after months or years off
continuing your pointe practice, but with more intention, specificity, comprehensive approach
more Roni in your life!
Class is open to drop-ins, though dancers might enjoy taking the complete October cycle – some exercises will repeat from week to week, some will evolve and some will be added. This is ideal for those who enjoy some repetition and familiarity in their practice. But dancers are welcome to join class on any random Saturday of the month too!
