Current Class Updates:
Adult Ballet with Vija on 3/15 is cancelled. Resuming next week!
Adult ballet and jazz training for beginner and intermediate levels.
Whether you are new to dance or a studio veteran, we have the right classes for you. Conveniently located in the heart of Westchester County, NY, we offer the following classes weekly for adults ages 16 and older.
Adv. Intermediate Adult/Pre-Pro Teen with Diana White
A class for dancers with a significant understanding of ballet vocabulary. Adults of any age and experience level as well as SBS alumni and former dancers are welcome to join Diana and her advanced teens for a traditional ballet class peppered with anecdotes and insights from her decades at New York City Ballet and as a master teacher and international stager of Balanchine and Robbins.
Beginner/Adv. Beginner Ballet with Vija Kemanis
Ballet basics in a positive, encouraging environment. Vija guides the class with full demonstration and detailed verbal cues. Class starts with gentle stretches (bring a mat!), followed by barre and center exercises building technique, strength, flexibility, and memory. Musicality, lyricism, and expressiveness are integral to Vija’s movement.
In addition to learning repertoire from well known ballets or Rosemary’s own choreography, dancers will also have a unique opportunity to perform in the Scarsdale Ballet Studio spring recital in June.
Intermediate Ballet with Vija Kemanis
A challenging class for the experienced ballet dancer. Class time is divided evenly between barre and center exercises. A gradual, complete warmup at the barre enforces proper alignment, strength, flexibility, memory, and musical precision. At center, combinations are built on the dancer’s expanded vocabulary, technique, musicality, and expressiveness.
Intermediate Ballet with Fronda Sobel
Fronda’s adult intermediate class is geared for people with at least three years of ballet training who feel comfortable with ballet vocabulary. We welcome back people who have been away from the technique for a while, plus participants who want to dance for pleasure while improving their present technique.
Adv. Beg/Intermediate Jazz with Vija Kemanis
Previous ballet or jazz dance experience is recommended. A gradual full-body warmup in the center is followed by progressions (a series of traveling steps across the floor), and finally, a jazz combination lasting several measures of music. Vija choreographs in the styles of modern jazz and lyrical jazz.
