This course emphasizes increasing technical proficiency, improving anatomical awareness, and developing deeper understanding of the skills and principles of ballet technique. Students at this level must be competent at the intermediate level and ready to perform longer and more complex movement sequences that approach a fuller level of synthesis and performance qualities.
