Ballet-Afrique: Exuberantly Graceful Contemporary Dance Fusion
After a lifetime of ballet training and over 25 years of African dance, I am especially thrilled to be following my own creative inspirations through the exploration and development of my own unique movement vocabulary, which I began in earnest in the autumn of 2012. Playfully blending the natural, organic movements of basic West African Dance with the most accessible elements of Ballet, Modern & Jazz, "Ballet-Afrique", is energetic and expressive, while also being both graceful and strong. Although it pulls from two beautiful and well established forms, it is designed to stand on it’s own, providing a meeting place for both established dancers, and those brand new to the practice.
As a compliment to Ballet-Afrique, or for its own strengthening and connecting value, I also teach beginning adult ballet - both community classes and private lessons. I specialize in the understanding and mindful application of mechanics, developing excellent technique, and practicing correct placement and alignment. These elements strengthen the body, contributing to good posture, flexibility, endurance, agility, and grace, allowing dancers of all ages to dance to their fullest, for as long as their hearts desire!
