Jillian will be teaching Complexions Contemporary Ballet Repertory and CCB ‘NIQUE.
NIQUE is the official techNIQUE of COMPLEXIONS Contemporary Ballet and was created in the formative years of the company by its Founders Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson. This technique was developed with a TOTAL BODY approach to training and uses a fusion of CLASSICAL and CONTEMPORARY based dance methods to explore both on and off-center movement.
NIQUE is geared toward the dancer that wants to broaden their understanding of the relationship between the upper and lower body, as well as the complexities of moving freely and clearly within a CONTEMPORARY style.
This technique uses a Classical Ballet structure as its foundation, yet allows momentum, and the integration of a fully mobile torso, weight shift, and dynamics to enhance the outcome. Contemporary in its perspective NIQUE places a special emphasis on COORDINATION, PHYSICAL IGNITION, PRECISION, EFFICIENCY, and CLARITY OF FORM.
The NIQUE training method is designed to take a dancer to the next level, through a series of fluid exercises constructed to build STRENGTH, STABILITY and OVERALL PLACEMENT. From the barre to Center floor, NIQUE focuses on versatility and range – with a keen awareness of the fullness in physicality necessary to convey impactful dancing.
