Are you or someone you know interested in learning ballet at a beginner level? Starting tomorrow, September 3, 2022 from 4 to 5:30 pm Eastern Time (ET) and for eight weeks, Dark Room Ballet is offering its “Open Level Dark Room Ballet Class.” No prior knowledge is required for the classes, which are developed to meet the educational needs of people who are blind or have low vision. Sessions introduce students to basic ballet terminology to prepare for participation in their “Open Level Dark Room Ballet Class.” The introductory series covers anatomical concepts like “foot sensitivity and mobility,” “torso stability,” balancing without sight, and the use of tape on the floor for orientation. Classes are held on Zoom, with an option to call in via phone.
