For our Giselle Masterclass, the focus was on Romantic style paying special attention to “épaulements” (shouldering), position of upper body, eyes, arms. After a classical warm-up at the barre, the class included many references and step combinations that you could find in this masterpiece. We worked on Giselle entrance of the 1st Act and 2nd Act.
Swan Lake Masterclass was an opportunity for students to work on more details and learn a variation from the repertoire. Starting with a classical ballet class for the first half, we then followed up with pointe work and ended with the transmission of Odette’s variation in second act of “Swan Lake”.
