Jacob Williams – Dance – Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend

Join Jacob and Andrew Howes as they sprint (teleport) through 500 years of dance. Over two 20-minute modules, you will gain an insight into the historical and cultural influences which shaped ballet and contemporary dance and be guided through various ballet and contemporary dance exercises which highlight some of the differences between these two dance genres.  Each module will also include a cool down stretch.

  • Plies: ‘Diamonds are a dancer’s best friend’
  • Petit allegro: ‘Jumping to escape change’
  • Small jump: ‘We don’t want to become old, decrepit… people’
  • Roll down stretch: ‘A-frame is for articulate’
