GET YOUR BALLET ON AT...
Josie Walsh is the Artistic Director of the Joffrey Ballet School / San Francisco Contemporary Ballet Summer Program, Joffrey West (LA) summer program and JoffreyRED Summer Intensive.. In addition to the classes listed below, Josie is also available for master classes, workshops, and choreography.
As an artist and teacher, her PRIMARY GOAL primary goal is to INVOKE AND INSPIRE; to compel from herself and her students a deeply realized meaning. Dance represents the deepest freedom of expression in that it leaves nothing to hide behind, nothing to obscure the naked truth that as the dancer, YOU ARE THE ART.
Josie has enjoyed a long, successful and diverse career as a ballerina dancing professionally with the Joffrey Ballet, Zurich Ballet and Oregon Ballet Theatre as well as numerous project work where she has developed her signature style bringing a progressive and unique approach to Ballet. Rooted in classical technique, Josie fuses disciplines of yoga and contemporary/modern to deepen the understanding of connection, breath and timing inside the classical discipline. Set to alternative music, her stylized classes are both challenging and fun connecting dancers technically while opening them up artistically through the ballet syllabus and beyond.
"FREEDOM WITHIN THE STRUCTURE" - JOSIE WALSH
Josie Walsh is well known for her dynamic ballet class set to alternative music covering the full classical ballet syllabus in depth with emphasis on proper pelvic alignment, initiating movement from the core, incorporating circular movement, breath, dynamic opposition, grounding and utilizing gravity in order to achieve the elongated "up". Breathing life into the classical discipline is foundational and a bridge to all forms of dance.
