— Michelle W. Adult Ballet
Danielle is an amazing teacher and choreographer. Can’t wait to take her class again!
— Hillary G.

Join me for workshops held at the Grace Milliman Pollock Performing Arts Center in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.

WORKSHOPS! are designed for ballet and modern dancers (12+) with previous experience. Whether you are a former dancer who wants to dance again, a teacher seeking to refresh their knowledge, or an intermediate/advanced teen who is seeking focused supplementary training, this is for you!

Through WORKSHOPS!, dancers have an opportunity to participate in smaller class sizes. Rather than the anonymity of drop-in, Messiah College instructor Danielle Smith Guillermo creates an atmosphere of community. Ms. Guillermo learns your strengths and weaknesses and helps to facilitate your growth. Dancers partner with Ms. Guillermo as well as the other committed dancers who sign up to attend each 6 week session. Together, dancers celebrate their successes while challenging each other to reach for the next level.

Danielle is fabulous! Gets right to root of technical problems and helps correct them. Also an incredible choreographer- you will love these classes!
— Bethany S.

THE WORKSHOPS

Progressing Ballet Technique classes are open to dancers (12+). This technique is used to condition and strengthen muscles for proper execution in classes-- ballet or contemporary. Progressing Ballet Technique™ trains the body for safe classwork- correct muscle engagement, core strength, and ultimately reduced injury. This class supplements regular training. *Danielle Smith Guillermo is a certified Progressing Ballet Technique™ instructor.

Ballet classes emphasize correct placement and alignment for the dancer's body as well as musical dynamics and artistic choices. Each class builds upon previous lessons. Dancers are encouraged to take both Ballet and Progressing Ballet Technique™ classes on Saturday mornings. This allows the dancers to immediately apply knowledge from Progressing Ballet Technique to their ballet classwork.

Modern (TBD for Winter I) classes begin with a warm up that is rooted classical modern, namely the Horton technique. The work progresses into exercises that travel in center and across the floor. Each class ends with a choreographed combination. The combination will be developed over the 6 week period.

...I have seen incredible results thanks to Danielle’s extraordinary gift of teaching. I highly recommend these classes to anyone looking to enhance their technique and share their love with a great group of dancers...
