How it works

About this class

This class will build on the technique and vocabulary learned in the beginning level, with an emphasis on moving beautifully from one step to another. This class will work to incorporate breathing, coordination, musicality, and movement quality into the technique. Students should wear ballet slippers and form-fitting dance wear. Leotard and tights are ideal, but students may adjust their attire so that they are comfortable.

Ballet - Advanced Beginning with Marika
This class was great for students with a few years of prior ballet training. While pink tights and black leotards are optional, you should wear ballet slippers/pointe shoes.
Ballet - Advanced Beginning with Marika
Super fun and a great workout, I was really feeling it in my calves and butt the next day! There is no beginner beginner class, so if you havent had much ballet training, it may be tough to keep up with the latter portions of the class involving more complex choreography but the teacher was patient and encouraging

Mariela is amazing.
Ballet - Advanced Beginning with Marika
Marika is a wonderful teacher.
Ballet - Advanced Beginning with Marika
The class follows a traditional ballet technique format with classic barre exercises and center work. Marika is a truly wonderful teacher. She occasionally offers technical corrections but always in a positive way. Never done an embot? Not a worry because Marika will happily breakdown confusing steps so they're understood and more accessible. Oh and did I mention the live pianist? This class is gold!
Ballet - Advanced Beginning with Marika
Class was good. Easier though than other classes (such as Lines) marked Advanced Beginning

Love Marika's clas!
Ballet - Advanced Beginning with Marika
I think the advanced beginning description is accurate. I highly recommend you already have some ballet experience if you're going to take this class. It was perfect for someone like me who used to practice ballet a lot but who hasn't practiced in five years. It's the perfect level between beginning and intermediate. :)
