skip Posted February 27, 2005 Report Share Posted February 27, 2005 I just had to share today's experience. We had this masterclass in Amsterdam today, taught by Lynn Wallis, Artistic Director of the RAD. There were 2 classes, class 1 was for students doing Intermediate Foundation. Class 2 was for students doing Intermediate and up. I was in the second group and it was quite busy. The emphasis of the class was on feeling the music and moving with the music. No real personal corrections, but more in general. Exercises were mostly at Intermediate, a few more Adv. foundation level. It was a bit on the simple side for me, but they were really brainteasers (with tendues side all closing front or back instead of changing, which we use generally). Barre was ok, not many exercises, but they took some time. Centre was ok too, a nice port de bras, some easy going pirouette exercises and adage. Allegro became a bit messy, since half of the group didn't pay enough attention. A bit of a shame. No time for pointe, unfortunately, but still, the experience was worth the time and money. I would love to take a class of her again! Sorry, I just had to share, since we don't have many classes like this in the Netherlands. ~SKIP~ Quote Link to comment
