Wednesday section of ballet appreciation course

Due to popular demand, I am adding another section of my 6-week "Introduction to the National Ballet of Canada's season" course at the Walter Carsen Centre for The National Ballet of Canada 470 Queens Quay West, Toronto, Wednesday evenings 6 -- 745, from October 6 to November 10.
Enrich your experience of ballet in general and the seven programs in the National Ballet of Canada's season in particular with insights into the choreography, the design, and the music. Where appropriate and available, video clips will be used, along with demonstrations of certain steps and postures to help you identify distinctive choreographic styles. Depending on the repertoire, we may look at the ballet's performance history, learn about the choreographer's life and works and the historical context in which the ballet was created, examine the story on which the ballet is based, study ballet mime, and compare different versions of the same ballet. Deepen your appreciation of the technical aspects of dance by learning to recognize a different ballet step by name each week and understanding its physical challenges.
Course fee is $199. To register, please email me at
