- McAllen Ballet Incubator
Foundation level for teens who are new to Ballet. Body strength is the focus for this level to achieve the control and be able to master the movement and balance when dancing. Students are taught basic steps as preparation for turns and jumps. It is also important to ensure that the student work on their en dehors (rotation of the hips) up to a 90o turn out in order to prevent injuries in the future. Body positions such as croisé, écartée, etc. are taught. As students progress they will start working on turns, extensions and big jumps. The steps that were already learned and mastered by the students become more advanced and complicated, such as working on the preparation for fast jumps, as well as “transfer steps” that will prepare the students to dance during class and not only on their choreographies.
