|Adult Ballez is a joyful class that strives to re-imagine what ballet can be, who it can be for, and how it can be done. Shifting the focus away from traditional ideas of technical virtuosity, participants instead explore the virtuosity of genderqueer embodiment, practice energetic mirroring, learn inclusive partnering techniques, seek out (and destroy) our culturally constructed biases, and discover new freedom to witness the beauty of one another as we dance to the beats of queer icons
Starting with authentic (fantasy) movement, we warm-up at the barre, then move to center to turn, jump, practice partnering, and help each other fly across the floor.
Classes are open to all queers and allies. Socks are useful, ballet shoes not required, and beginner to advanced levels are all welcome.
Presented in partnership with Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center
FREE with RSVP.
