New Class! PTDW teacher, Erika Ripley, is now teaching Ballet Kinetics (Progressing Ballet Technique).
This unique course was carefully designed by professional dancer and RAD instructor Marie Walton-Mahon with a team of
physiotherapists to enhance  muscular training. The low-impact class focuses on creating strong muscle memory to assist in
executing ballet movements safely and strongly by marrying together elements of floor barre, pilates, and ballet. This class is
great for students looking to improve their muscle stability, turn out range, and body awareness. Erika received her certification
in August 2018 and has been incredibly passionate about sharing this game changing technique!

This class is recommended for levels Ballet 2 and up, Contemporary 3 and up, and all beginner/intermediate adult classes

Students are required to purchase and bring a Fit Ball (which has to be appropriate for your height) and one 9" Pilates Ball.
She also recommends bringing a Yoga/Pilates mat. If you are unsure about what size Fit Ball to purchase, give us a call and we
can answer your questions.

Dance for Parkinson's  Our Dance for Parkinson's classes are taught by Pamela Trokanski, with former PTDT dancer and
current Bikram Yoga instructor Erin Dunning returning as a class assistant! This is one of the Dance Theatre's community
outreach programs, done in partnership with the Mondavi Center for the Arts & The Mark Morris Dance Group. Summer
classes will run on July 9, 16, 23, and 30. Then, we'll take a short break before returning to classes in September.
