What to explore at Central School of Ballet Phnom Penh?
Adult Beginner Ballet Class
Central School of Ballet Phnom Penh Beginner Ballet Class is specifically designed for the adult student who has had NO previous dance training. It is an introduction to ballet, making it easy for absolutely everyone to keep up. This class includes the very basics of ballet and gives the student the knowledge to join a more advanced class when ready. The class starts off with simple exercises at the barre and the second half of the class takes part in the centre, focusing on control and mastering the basic steps of ballet. Students need not wear a leotard and tights for this class (sweats or yoga pants are fine).
The Beginner Ballet Class is held every Tuesday from 19:15 to 20:45.
Ballet Foundation Technique Class
Central School of Ballet Phnom Penh's Foundation Technique class is structured to provide students with a firm foundation in ballet technique and vocabulary in a series of steps. This class is both for people who danced when they were younger and remember the basics of ballet and have returning to ballet after years away and are looking for a “refresher” course, or have a lot of experience in another dance style and want to quickly cover all the basics of ballet before advancing, as well as more technically proficient students. Exercises include fundamental barre work as well as basic and intermediate turns and jumps. These are then combined in simple movement phrases.
Foundation Technique classes are held Thursdays from 19:15 to 20:45.
Contemporary classes combine Cunningham, Graham and Limón techniques, taking the best of each to give students well balanced training. CSBPP's classes involve extensive warm up exercises designed to strengthen the dancer while improving flexibility and technical accuracy; quicker, more complex centre exercises improve balance and movement quality with a variety of challenging combinations with original choreography set to a diverse musical selection.
Contemporary dance classes are for both beginners and intermediate dancers.
Contemporary classes are held Wednesdays from 19:15 to 20:45.
Dancers have the most amazing bodies. They stand not too muscly, still lean, but powerful and confident. For people who do not feel ready to face the rigours of classical ballet training, but still would like to get the type of body dancers have, Central School of Ballet Phnom Penh's Body Conditioning programme will help them build ballet strength.
A typical body conditioning class will be filled with workouts to help them get the overall tone and workout that dancers get from ballet. Almost all of the workouts are based on some ballet move. The exercises combine stretching with strengthening and aim to improve body tone giving students greater flexibility, cardiovascular stamina and better posture. Students will also get a sense of achievement when they learn to master complex combinations that give them the feeling that they are dancing.
Body Conditioning classes are not being offered this semester.
Adult Ballet / Contemporary Dance Dress Code
Leotard and tights are recommended for both ladies and gentlemen for ballet and modern class, but other wear may be worn (see below). Appropriate footwear is required: ballet shoes for ballet. Longer hair should be pulled back away from the face and dangling jewelry is discouraged.
