Classical Ballet Barre Workshop
Saturday, November 30th 1-2pm
Whether you have danced in the past or are new to ballet, join this compassionate & energetic traditional ballet barre. Emily’s workshop is set to classical ballet barre music and moves from breathy pliés to a stretchy reverence. No center work or petit allegro, for those worried about balance and joint pain. Emily has experience teaching beginner through professional, all interest levels welcome! Comfortable clothing and socks or ballet shoes recommended.
Emily started ballet at a young age and danced through her early 20s, earning her BA in Dance at Goucher College. In high school, she had the privilege to dance with Helena Baron Ballet Company, where she was under the direction of Mrs. Baron. Emily also studied with Brunilda Ruiz, Paul Sutherland, Vladimir & Olga Dvorovenko and Ralph DiRienzo. After years of intense training, yoga became a quiet place to reacquaint herself with her body. Taking a short break from dancing, all together, Emily is ready to put her body knowledge & compassion back into her classroom. She found her way to Jolly Llama through Aerial and now is enrolled the the Yoga Teacher Training! Emily and her husband, Nate, love on their three small kids, a dog, a cat and an occasional stray mouse.
