FBDC trains dancers in Classical Ballet following ABT Curriculum and Bournonville techniques. Bournonville Method is a technique brought to us by the Danish Ballet focusing on the “lightness if the upper body and expression.” Our number one priority is the safety of our dancers and the prevention of injury as they grow. Therefore all Ballet classes with involve a strong focus on body awareness, human anatomy, strengthening and posture.
FBDC teaches traditional Jazz- Jazz is a performance dance technique that came to the United States in the 20th Century. Students will focus on the performance side of dance executing fun, fast paced combinations with a strong focus on flexibility and control. Stage tricks and acro may also play a part in these upbeat dance classes! Ballet in strongly recommended to take with Jazz.
FBDC takes pride in their strong Contemporary instruction. Contemporary is todays most popular genre, combining all dance techniques in order to present unique movement using shapes, levels and dynamics. We focus strongly on Horton and Graham techniques in order to provide our dancers with the best understanding of their body in space. Intricate across the floors and inversions are often practiced along with combinations that bring out our most vulnerable movement. Ballet is HIGHLY recommended and Contemporary is only offered to dancers with experience in order to keep our movers safe and educated.
