Class Description

Ballet is the foundation for most forms of dance, including musical theater dance, jazz dance, tap, and modern. In order to preform at the highest levels musical theater students must learn the basics of ballet. This class will cover basic ballet technique, terminology, and positions as well as build strength and endurance. Skills will be developed through work at the barre and in the center. Students will also learn about a few of the most famous ballets (the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Giselle) and will experience dance storytelling as they create a mini ballet for showcase! This class is highly recommended for both male and female students to give a proper dance foundation for building musical theater dance skills. Get ready to leap and twirl with grace!


Lisa Allison

Lisa has been dancing and preforming since she was very young. She received a BA in theatre performance and theatre administration from Whitworth University. She has studied numerous styles of dance including ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap, hip-hop, swing, ballroom, and latin. Since graduating, she has been active working with professional and community theatres in the Portland and Salem area stage managing and choreographing. She believes we were all made with the ability to dance, and with a little practice and instruction, we can create something very beautiful through movement. For Lisa, dance is a joyful expression of the soul, and she is excited to share that joy with others. When not working on a production, she enjoys going on adventures with her husband, Kyle, and their daughter, Alexandra.
