Bjarne has been teaching adult ballet beginners in multiple studios around Los Angeles under various banners since 2014, but is now flying under his own, BjarneBallet!
Now concentrating on the intermediate level, all are welcome! You should have taken some ballet before, know the basics and be able to follow the progression of a classical ballet class as well as wanting to learn more. The style Bjarne teaches is a mixture of what he himself grew up with, the Bournonville style, the Vaganova school and the teachings of Stanley Williams (American/Balanchine style). Classes are taught, not given and you will be challenged, pushed -and have fun! These classes are friendly, non-competitive and non-judgmental - it should be fun to learn dance. BjarneBallet adult ballet classes have an emphasis on style and presentation, arms and upper body, without ignoring the technical aspects. Classes are a workout for both body and brain - Multiple studies around the world in the last decade have shown the extreme benefits of dance to not only a sharp mind at any age, but dancing can even improve learning abilities in other disciplines.
BjarneBallet will be scheduling monthly adult ballet workshops that will teach anything from Variations and Group Pieces to Specialty techniques like Pointe work and Fouettè turns, suggestions and requests are always welcome.
BjarneBallet will also have a few limited spots for Private Lessons at any level for anyone interested.
BjarneBallet is proud to teach all classes at the historic Hollywood Dance Center on Highland Avenue.
