What goes into training as a dancer

By June 7, 2018News

Have you ever wondered what dancers must do to prepare for the stage? It takes lots of hard work. Verb Ballets dancers take an hour and half class every day. Typically, ballet but they also take classes in modern dance. Strength and flexibility are very important to dancer. Before class dancers must warm up and stretch. After class the dancers then continue in the studio for four hours a day learning and rehearing choreography. It is an incredibly physically and mentally demanding job! 

Join Verb Ballets for an exclusive Ballet UpClose lunch time class viewing and showing to wrap up the 2017-18 season on June 22, 2018 at 12:00pm. This unique opportunity will provide insight into the training and how the dancers prepare their bodies and minds for performances. We will welcome and introduce new company members for the 2018-19 season. Also, on the program is an appearance of young students from the Fairmount Center for the Arts and the Adverb Project, a group comprised of adult student learners. Stay afterward for a meet and greet luncheon with the dancers.
