Ballet is a type of performance dance that originated during the Italian Renaissance in the 15th century and later developed into a concert dance form in France and Russia. It has since become a widespread, highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary based on French terminology. One of its most iconic techniques requires dancers to move gracefully on the tips of their toes, otherwise known as en pointe.
This class seeks to help aspiring dancers understand and explore their own bodies through a thorough and detailed introduction to the basics of classical ballet techniques.
About Ren Yi
Ren Yi is a multi-faceted dance artist and a dance educator with a passion for working with young children. She was born and raised in Shanghai where she was one of the first young ballerinas to be trained and mentored by the great ballet pioneer Wang Qifeng at the Wang Qifeng Ballet School in the early 90s.
Ren Yi moved to Singapore in 2003 to pursue her dance education at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA). After she graduated in 2006, she decided to stay on to nurture young dancers at the affiliated School Of Young Talents as a full-time ballet teacher for another 10 years.
Not only is Ren Yi a dedicated teacher, she is also a tireless student constantly seeking to expand herself in her art form and other related disciplines. She counts Antonio Vargas and Sofia Pratt as two of her most inspiring teachers, especially in the field of Spanish Dance and Flamenco.
