TECH 1,2 & 3

The Technique levels focus on greater physical awareness where  artistic qualities are emphasized. Training becomes personal. There is a greater awareness of applying corrections as well as an understanding of technically principles and philosophy. Strength, elevation, extension, control are instrumental  through adagio, pirouettes, petite allegro and grand allegro.  By the Technique 3 level there is exploration through interpretation, different styles and musical sensibility. The partnership between the artistic and athletic aspects of dance performance become much more physically defined.
