Classical / Contemporary Ballet

Corina Kinnear started her training at Parker Dance Academy, and then pre-professionally at the International Ballet School under Mark Carlson and German Zamuel.  She continued in San Francisco where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts with Alonzo King's Lines Ballet and Dominican University as well as her certification as a Gyrotonic® instructor.  Since, she has danced and toured as a freelance artist and choreographer with companies in New York, Montreal, Colorado, San Francisco, and Europe.

After dancing in Teddy Forance’s documentary 'Movement One', Corina moved to LA and has begun performing with local companies including Invertigo Dance Theatre (Laura Karlin), MiMoDa (Yasha Jacobs), The Movement Movement (Mecca Vazie Andrews), and Arrogant Elbow (Sarah Elgart).  Additionally she tours as choreographer for her own productions and as a guest teacher for studios nationally.


Class Description:

Corina teaches a classically structured ballet class, but encourages dancers to take the class with a contemporary approach so that they may use the functionality of the technique to empower their potential and strength in any movement they may be undertaking.
