Ballet with Donlin Foreman, High Intermediate/Advanced and low intermediate/Intermediate 2/10/14 - 6/30/14
Low Intermediate/Intermediate, Mondays 4pm – 530pm High Intermediate/Advanced, Mondays 5pm-630pm For Donlin Foreman (former Principle dancer for Martha Graham) Ballet class has been a specific door into the house of expressive dancing and maintenance of the body. Through this ballet class we will deal with the fundamentals of: placement, rhythm, physicality, line, and cultivating performance quality. His extensive work with Alexander Technique (google it) and Pilates greatly influences his point of view. His concentration in both levels is: placement, line, rhythm, physicality, and performance quality using the ballet vocabulary and steps to become stronger more aware dancers. This class has an incredible grasp on artistry and technique while taking a unique focus on each individual dancer. This is not like any ballet class that you have experienced and greatly increases you ability both in line, focus, artistry and technique. This class does require commitment.

Spring Wildflower Walk 4/26/14 - 4/26/14
Early spring brings a bloom of hardy wildflowers, those that take advantage of light reaching the forest floor before the trees leaf out. These flowers, including blue cohosh, hepatica, dutchman’s britches, squirrel corn, foamflower, violets, and more, are particularly abundant in rich forest sites. Brattleboro’s Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center (BEEC) has a “sweet soil” site where these flowers proliferate. BEEC naturalist Patti Smith has been observing the bloom for many years and will be your guide for this walk, offered in connection with the exhibit Flora: A Celebration of Flowers in Contemporary Art. She will lead you off trail to see a few of the more unusual plants that bloom in this special area. This walk is about 3/4 of a mile on very hilly terrain, but the pace will be leisurely.
