Russian Academy of Ballet is proud to present the new music program that will include lessons in piano, guitar, bass, mandolin, voice, and violin.
Our goal is to introduce and bring together the arts in Central Florida and offer children opportunities to play live music during local events, fundraisers, annual recitals, and special concerts. The music program is available to all levels, from beginners to advanced, regardless of your participation at the Russian Academy of Ballet dance program. Through this program students will grow as musicians and receive quality training from the best musicians in town. The program will open doors into various performing stages of Orlando, including musical events, concerts, and orchestras.
In Russian Ballet schools music is a must for every dancer. It helps to develop musicality, timing, and rhythm that inspires students to become more emotional and dramatic performers.
Unlike majority of music schools, Russian Academy of Ballet will ensure multiple performing opportunities for young musicians to master the instrument on stage in professional productions throughout Orlando.
Russian Academy of Ballet now hosts Flamenco classes for children and adults by Flamenco De Perfil.
What is Flamenco? It is a passionate art form that originated in the region of Andalucia, Spain, noted for its energetic, deep and meaningful style approximately in the 18th century. It is accompanied by “cante” (singing), “toque” (guitar playing), dance, and “palmas” (hand clapping), which are essential components for flamenco.
The classes are taught by two professional flamenco dancers, Martha Cardenas-Romero and Ely Cardenal “La Salerita.”
“Two different profiles, two innovative and refreshing styles come together to bring you an exciting and energetic flamenco experience, leading you to its most inner secrets, unleashing the soul and passion for flamenco.”
Together, Martha and Ely convey a different perspective and a new way of shaping this type of dance form as part of a wellness and fitness program. They have come up with a ground-breaking dance series that allow everyone to get involved, but, most importantly, a fun and pleasant environment you can relate to and share the passion for dance.
For information on prices, questions, schedule, and classes available, please visit Flamenco De Perfil website. Classes start February 7th, 2012 at Russian Academy of Ballet Studio at 421 North Bumby Ave, Orlando, FL 32803.
There are numerous advantages of receiving a one on one instruction. Private lessons offer you more personal attention than you receive in a group class and allow you to learn or improve your ballet techniques at a faster pace. We focus on ballet basics, stretching, stage character, positions, technique, precise foot placement, and all other aspects of ballet.
Miss Katerina and Miss Irina have years of experience of successfully giving private lessons to those who are training for competitions, performances, or beginners who are looking to jump into ballet at a faster pace.
All private lessons are taught at either Bumby or Waterford studios are your convenience.
