The Morning Master Classes

The inspirational program will be taught by distinguished guest faculty Rhodie Jorgenson,
Anna-Marie Rabassi-Davis, Barbara Sandonato, Jonathan Stafford, and Marcia Dale Weary.

The Intermediate and Advanced ballet classes, for students age 11 and up, are scheduled in two class periods from 10:00 am-1:00 pm. Students have the opportunity to take the first class only (ballet technique), or to attend two classes (ballet technique followed by pointe, variations, and/or partnering, when appropriate). Female students will be assigned to upper-level pointe, variations, and partnering classes by the master class faculty. Class offerings and schedules (subject to change) are detailed below.

The special Elementary ballet classes are available only to students age 8-12 selected by Senior Ballet Teachers attending the Seminar. All Elementary students are required to attend a placement class at 9:30 am in order to receive their appropriate class assignments from Anna-Marie Rabassi-Davis and Marcia Dale Weary. Elementary ballet classes will be held between 10:00 am-1:15 pm. Elementary students assigned to classes starting at 11:15 am or 12:15 pm may receive permission to observe upper-level master classes in the morning.

Ballet Seminar

Turn-Out: Theory, Practices and History

Once again Peabody Dance joins with its many friends and colleagues in order to demonstrate and discuss important dance topics and examine persistent questions in teaching the art of beautiful movement. The day is offered not only to ballet teachers at all levels of experience but also to professional dancers, artistic directors, ballet masters, college dance instructors and dance majors, dance writers and critics plus all whose love of dance runs deep.

This full-day event, led by Peabody Dance's revered Artistic Advisor, Barbara Weisberger, and her indispensable partner, Anna-Marie Rabassi-Davis, consists of two elements: the morning of Master Class observation and the afternoon Demonstration-Discussions. In addition to Ms. Weisberger and Ms. Rabassi-Davis, Demonstration-Discussion leaders include legendary dance world figures: Rhodie Jorgenson, Maryland Youth Ballet Faculty; Rima Faber, founding President of the National Dance Education Organization; Marcia Dale Weary, Founding Artistic Director of the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet; Nilimma Devi, founder and director of the Sutradhar Institute of Dance and Related Arts; David Smith, and other outstanding dance professionals.

The afternoon Demonstration-Discussions will focus primarily on aspects of turn-out: enhancing the line of the dancer's body for the beholder - the audience. We will also explore its history and relation to fencing stances, various traditional and innovative practices, and how it influences aspects of dance technique, such as: classical ballet, modern dance, diverse folk dances, and other forms. The Seminar's success truly depends on the active participation of all who attend. Come and be prepared not only to observe but to comment, question, and share your insights!
