On Sunday we concluded our anniversary celebration with a full day of DanceWear Corner ballet master classes with the hosts of the podcast we sponsor, Conversations on Dance. Miami City Ballet dancer Rebecca King Ferraro and former Miami City Ballet dancer Michael Sean Breeden, came into our store to teach a group of 8-12 year olds and 13-18 year olds.  They brought in a new take on classical ballet, offering something new for a lot of the students.  They also sat down and answered dancer and parent questions.  Another way DanceWear Corner is more than just a dance wear store!

Stay tuned to our social media for future event information.

Conversations on Dance: Carla Korbes

Happy #ConversationsTuesday! DanceWear Corner is the proud sponsor of the “Conversations on Dance” podcast.  Hosts Rebecca King Ferraro and Michael Sean Breeden were in our stores this past weekend for master classes to celebrate our anniversary!  But this week they are back at it sharing tons of new content from their recent trip to Vail for the Vail Dance Festival.  For their bonus content from Vail, click here.


This week Rebecca and Michael are joined by Carla Korbes, former Pacific Northwest Ballet Principal Dancer.  Carla was born in Brazil and moved to New York to study at the School of American Ballet at the age of 15.  In 2000, she joined the New York City Ballet as a member of the corps and was promoted to soloist in 2005.  Later that year, she moved to Seattle to join Pacific Northwest Ballet under the direction of Peter Boal, a former podcast guest.  Since her retirement from PNB in 2015 at the age of 33, she has been working as associate artistic director for LA Dance Project.  Later this month she will be starting her new position at Indiana University as associate professor of music in ballet.  Today they talk with her about her early career at City Ballet, what prompted her move to Seattle, and what post-retirement life looks like for her now.

How Master Classes Benefit Your Dance Education

During the school year there is so much to focus on: homework, grades, tests, friends, and extra-curricular activities.  That is why the summer is always a perfect time to really set everything else aside and focus on your dance education.  Whether it’s through summer intensives, camps, conventions, or competitions, being able to simply focus on your passion is a great feeling.

But how can you get that feeling back during the school year?  Well, it is often easy to settle into a pattern during the school year, with the same teachers and taking class with the same dancers.  Just like with summer dance programs, it’s really important to continue to take yourself out of your comfort zone with new teachers and surrounding yourself with different talent.  So we suggest you stay on the lookout for master classes in your area to help switch it up.  Here’s why:

Your teachers have so much to offer you, but sometimes you feel like you always hear them say the same thing over and over.  By seeking out master classes, you are exposed to teachers with different backgrounds, different training, and different career paths.  This means that they can offer you something new and different to compliment your current dance training.  Likely, you may hear master class teachers repeat something your teachers tell you every day at your studio.  Sometimes hearing the same information from another source, and in a slightly different way, can really make a concept hit home.  This can solidify the importance of the correction, and reminds you that your teachers aren’t just making things up!

Surrounding yourself by different dancers is essential.  Master classes bring together the most dedicated and hard working dancers in a given area many of whom you don’t dance with every day.  Though you may be top dog at your studio, it’s always good to remind yourself who else is out there.  There are good dancers every where you look and allowing yourself to be exposed to them, learn from them, and be inspired by them, offers you a new perspective on your dancing.

So as the new school year starts and you feel summer program withdrawals, remember that there are a lot of opportunities out there for master classes and special events to benefit your dance education.


Come celebrate the end of the summer with us at DanceWear Corner in Orlando, where we will be hosting a series of master classes with Miami City Ballet Dancer Rebecca King Ferraro and former Miami City Ballet dancer Michael Sean Breeden, the hosts of the Conversations on Dance podcast.  Come and get a new perspective on ballet technique as Ms. Ferraro and Mr. Breeden teach a Balanchine inspired classes for two levels.  For more information and to reserve your spot, visit our website.
