Our Curriculums for Excellence
LDI Living Dance International
Beth Bluett (Miss 'Beth')
Miss Beth is the founder and director of Living Dance International based in Sydney, Australia. Living Dance came about as a distillation of the world's best training methods; drawing from a rich fusion of the elements of Russian and British ballet technique but predominantly from the French luminary of dance - Rosella Hightower. Madam Hightower imparted exacting keys to understanding the core and professional dancers from all over the world came to learn these keys in Cannes, France. It brought about a safer impact on joints and an astounding level of technical virtuoso. Dancers came to 'sense' the 'centreline' of their core so could be on their balance in any given position. So freeing! LDI teaches students excellent ballet and contemporary dance technique whilst encouraging expression of christian values and modesty.
