CLASS STRUCTURE: We will start by working on detail and coordination through ballet exercises using the barre (you can use a wall/ chair/ any piece of furniture around waist-height, accessible in your home). We will work on musicality, strength, clarity and a more complex understanding of the dance discipline through the ballet lens. After we explore multiple exercises we will move away from the barre and go through a few center exercises. In the end there will be some time for discussion...
Students will work on discipline, spatial awareness and a deeper understanding of their bodies using the structure of ballet technique.

-Soft ballet shoes if accessible, otherwise socks can work -Comfortable clothing -Water bottle, if desirable -Ballet Barre (if you don't have a barre you can use a wall/ chair/ any piece of furniture around waist-height, accessible in your home)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Just a few logistics before we get started: It is nice to join the zoom meeting a few minutes early (if possible, otherwise no worries) so that I can help you with your setup. Just make sure you are wearing comfortable clothes (if you have ballet attire, that's great, but if not that is totally fine). Find a room with some space to move (you may have to move some furniture around and make sure there is no cords or things you might trip over) and place your device on the floor so I can see your full body as you are moving. Other than that you are all set and ready to get moving!
