What is the importance of classical dance

Classical dance / ballet

Classical dance has a long tradition. Origins can be found at the French court at the time of Louis XXIV.
Back then, the king, who was in love with art and dance, was the center of attention himself and was therefore happy and often as a soloist on stage. By the way, dance was a male domain back then!

Typical characteristics of today's classical dance technique were already defined during this time. So also the outward rotation of the legs in the hip joint, which should lead to more elegance through longer leg lines. Many steps and jumps have been given their original names and can easily be traced back.

Today we know classical dance through well-known ballets such as Swan Lake, Giselle or the famous Nutcracker.

Classical training usually consists of a “bar” and the “middle”.
Various elements are prepared on the pole, which are then used in a more complex manner in the room. At the bar, we can concentrate on technical subtleties, practice coordinative interaction and develop new elements. Classical dance is the only style that uses the bar so intensely. The reason is the outward rotation, which is unusual for us humans in everyday life. It irritates us and makes things difficult for us. The bar gives us security and lets us try things out in a relaxed manner.

The middle consists of exercises and dance combinations such as adagio (slow part), turns and small and large jumps. We also regularly create choreographies for our annual performances.
