MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: Next course dates TBA
The BALLET FOR ACTORS course is an exciting new training experience in Australia, lead by leading ballet teacher and physical practitioner, Kyle Davey.
This unique course will explore the bio-mechanics and movement concepts associated with ballet, as can be drawn into work as an actor and physical performer – whether for direct use in physical theatre, movement pieces, character creation or gesture; or simply to gain a greater understanding and range of your body as a performance tool.
Each session will introduce you to ballet terminology and a class structure which is designed to slowly and sequentially prepare the body for larger and more dynamic movements. The classes will progress from fundamentals such as posture and alignment and build to complex movement sequences.
With the use of imagery, movement intention and expressive interpretation the course will lead you through exploration and development.
By the end of the course you can expect to have enhanced your skills in: Balance, Co-ordination, Control Stability, Isolation, Flexibility, Strength, Stamina, Fine motor skills ,Musicality and Artistry.
