This class continues to work on basic skills and positions along with rhythm and musical quality recognition, still referencing the Discover Dance program for concepts. Dancers in this class learn to combine traveling movements with stationary movements, refine basic jumps (sauté), establish and stand in lines or other shapes, and to match their creative movements to the quality of the music (fast, slow, strong, soft, e.g.). Basic exercises such as plié, demi pointe, pointing one foot forward (tendu), walking with stretched feet, stopping in a pre-determined position, marching with stretched feet, and skipping are approached.
