Open Division Calgary

Flex Classes 2016-17

Our Flex program is for recreational dancers, ages 6 and up, with little or no previous ballet experience. Dancers will have the opportunity to train with world-class teachers with one class per week in ballet, jazz and/or modern. The Flex program can be a great complement to other recreational activities or a perfect introduction to dance for the older dancer. Class descriptions are below. 

Please read the HANDBOOK before completing your registration.

Flex Ballet
A perfect weekly class or introduction to ballet, Flex classes will concentrate on ballet structure through beginning barre work, port de bras, centre practice, allegro (jumping) and the development of a dance vocabulary – all in a relaxed and accessible environment for the recreational dancer. Ballet improves body posture, grace and strength and is the fundamental training that applies to all other dance forms. A professional pianist accompanies each class. Flex Ballet may be taken as a stand-alone or in addition to another Flex Class.

Flex Jazz
Jazz is a fun, relaxed class set to contemporary music. Explore the world of jazz dance while developing style, versatility and increased flexibility. You can choose to take jazz dance as a compliment to your ballet or modern class, or as a stand-alone.
