About this event

Developed and instructed by Rachel Linsky, Barefoot Ballet is modern approach to Classical Ballet that focuses on mind-body connection, anatomical alignment, and injury prevention. Each class will consist of Floor Barre exercises, a thorough Ballet Barre, and center work, all built around a central theme: from improving balance, to safely deepening external rotation, to increasing fluidity of movement in the upper body.

This is an open-level class designed to uniquely challenge dancers with a variety of experience levels from professional dancers to elementary adult students. Some prior experience with Ballet is recommended. You don't have to go barefoot; socks recommended! We like catchy titles.

The Click holds regular classes at The Foundry and The Dance Complex. Please note that this class series will be held weekly at The Dance Complex Mass Ave location in Studio 3. On June 19 only, class will be held in Studio 1.

About The Click:

Developed in 2021, The Click is a collaborative dance company and creative collective in Greater Boston. Its members are dancers whose primary medium of physical expression is through contemporary dance forms, but who experiment in many modes and genres of creativity. As a collective, The Click’s members are each deeply invested in answering the universally complex question: who am I and what am I doing here?

The Click contributes to the consistent presence of creativity in Boston and beyond in several ways: by educating pre-professional youth dancers, professional adult dancers and the dance-curious of any age; performing original creations several times a year at traditional and non-traditional venues across Massachusetts, New England and beyond; and by investing in the curiosity of those new to dance in Boston or new to dance in general by maintaining an open, inclusive and accessible community.
