During the adult ballet course, we will go through classical ballet technique, practice ballet-specific expression and choreographic phrases even further. The classes include barre exercises, center practice and free routines.
The course is meant for those who have been dancing adult ballet for a longer time and know the basics of ballet dancing. The course is suitable for example for those who have already participated in Ida’s previous adult ballet course for advanced beginners.
When coming to the classes, you need comfortable dance clothes and ballet shoes.
Teacher: Ida Martikainen
Ida is a present and gentle dance instructor who loves bodily expression. She has completed Basic Education in the Art of Dance between 2004–2013 in Jyväskylä Dance Institute, majoring in classical ballet and having contemporary dance, jazz dance and repertoire dance as her minors. In addition, she has been involved in several dance projects both as a dancer and as a choreographer. According to Ida, dancing is a journey to one’s own body and in the way to attach to a common space. She thinks that the most important element of the dance class is to stay present in the same place and time: the momentary synchronization and the common sense of the bodies. Through her teaching, Ida wants to get the dancers to feel their bodies powerful and bright.
