A foundational element of all Western dance styles, Ballet is taught in this class for all levels. A basic barre progresses to the Centre and then to a series of Across the Floor exercises designed to leave students experiencing the vitality and fluidity of movement.

Theatrical Combat 9-12yrs

Girls and boys learn the basic Irish steps and dances while exploring traditional music and rhythm. Each class will include warm up games and conditioning, skill development, and a cool down/stretch component. The Fall term will focus on developing a solo dance, Winter term’s emphasis will be on group dancing, ending with a St. Patrick’s Day Ceilidh. (Must complete Fall term to participate in Winter term).

Are the characters we see on film and television really fighting each other? Students will learn that what the audience sees is not two people embarking in vicious conflict, but in fact actors working in harmony to create the illusion of chaos and violence. Through acting and fundamental movement exercises students will gain awareness and control of their bodies, and learn to keep themselves and their fellow fighters safe. We will examine how violence can contribute to storytelling, create characters, as well as learn, rehearse and perform choreographed fight scenes.

Adults: 16+ Theatrical Combat

Residential Landscape Design

Are the characters we see on film and television really fighting each other? Students will learn that what the audience sees is not two people embarking in vicious conflict, but in fact actors working in harmony to create the illusion of chaos and violence. Through acting and fundamental movement exercises students will gain awareness and control of their bodies, and learn to keep themselves and their fellow fighters safe. We will examine how violence can contribute to storytelling, create characters, as well as learn, rehearse and perform choreographed fight scenes.

This workshop offers home owners, landscape professionals and others interested in developing this particular design skill a hands on exposure to the process. Participants are encouraged to bring a site plan of their property with footprint of their residence, as well as trees, plantings, septic tank/field, significant elevation changes, view corridors, as well as a wish list of elements they would like to see included in the design of their garden. We would touch on topography, site analysis, bubble diagrams and conceptual design.
