Ballet for Beginners | 7.30 - 8:45 pm | From September | €90 for 8 weeks

Dance Limerick Studio, 1 & 2 John's Square, Limerick
Level: Beginners

This class develops good posture, balance, flexibility, coordination, spatial awareness, and rhythm inherent both to Ballet as well as to a healthy body and mind. Ballet is not only a beautiful dance discipline. It also promotes the development of mental concentration and memory recall, together with body toning, strengthening and elongation of the muscular structure. You will learn basic ballet positions and patterns in a traditional structured class, consisting of a warm up, barre and centre exercises, and finally, a relaxing warm down routine incorporating improvised movements to music.

About the instructor:

Rebeca Mateos Morante has toured extensively both with the critically acclaimed Compañía Elvira Andrés led by the ex-director of the National Ballet of Spain, and as Flamenco soloist with the international dance phenomenon Riverdance. She has worked with many more prestigious choreographers, having performed one of the last productions of the famous Bodas de Sangre under the direction of its celebrated choreographer, the late Antonio Gades.

Rebeca forms part of the last generation of professional dancers to have trained at the renowned Centro Coreográfico Mariemma in Madrid incorporating extensive professional conservatory training in Classical Ballet, Bolero School, Spanish Stylised Dance, Spanish Folk Dances and Flamenco. In ballet alone she has trained under renowned masters such as Julia Estévez, Carmina Ocaña, Nadine Boisaubert and Patricia Crosbie among others.

Rebeca is currently studying for her PhD at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance where she guest lectures in both theoretical and performance based modules. A philosophy graduate with a first class honours Masters in Psychoanalysis and Cultural Studies, her own academic research output includes conference presentations, publications, and choreographies that explore themes associated with her interdisciplinary doctoral thesis titled “The Dancer in the Mirror: Body Identity and Body Motion in Danza Española”.
