Class Descriptions


J Ryan’s class draws on the work of his mentors and teachers. He uses the perspective of Hilary Cartwright’s Yoga Narada as a way to help the dancers to first connect deep within the body. As the dancers feel rooted within themselves, the real ballet structure begins to take form- using the David Howard Method which utilizes kinesthetic dynamics that build healthy patterns in the body. The goal of the class is to find a deeper sense of harmony in the body within the structure of ballet and music.
