WELCOME TO THE 5TH POSITION METHOD
Who we are.
The 5th Position Method created by Victoria Vargas is an innovative training philosophy developed to educate, nurture and inspire dance students to reach their full artistic potential.
The focus of the 5th Position Method is based upon the idea of creating deep anatomical understanding through a secure technical foundation, in turn inspiring an intelligent exploration of dance through movement.
THE 5TH POSITION
The 5th Position Fundamental class is a 60 minutes regimen focused on the introduction of our core philosophy. Through the use of Thera Bands, rollers, weights and additional props, you can expect to leave class with a developed physical vocabulary, a deepened muscular awareness and inspired mind.
The Basic level slowly introduces you to the basic exercises and techniques that will gradually improve your balance, strength, flexibility and endurance.
ELEVATION builds on the foundations established in the Body Awareness level by focusing on stretching and strengthening muscle groups using a combination of ballet and Pilates exercises. Elevation will continue to improve your flexibility and strength. This level also introduces you to the key concepts of Body Suspension and Body Balance.
The Balance level continues to build on the steady progress made from Body Awareness AND Elevation. It will expand your knowledge and technique enabling you to move confidently to the Advanced level.
This level is intense and will challenge your upper body and core, fully integrating the previous levels. It will maximize muscle fiber development using the most advanced and difficult muscle-elongating techniques and strengthening sequences.
