Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Intermediate Ballet students will:
-Improve their understanding of basic ballet stretches, as well as improve their flexibility
-Learn about and demonstrate "proper ballet technique" (ex: tall posture, working stomach muscles, pointed toes, no "sickling" of feet, etc.)
-Demonstrate an understanding of safety while dancing and stretching (ex: turning out from hips not knees)
-Build upon their existing knowledge of ballet to increase the complexity of steps 
-Improve their ability to count the beats in music, notice fast vs. slow tempos, and move accordingly 
-Demonstrate focus and discipline during class (ex: listening and practicing while combinations are taught)
-Cultivate a growth mindset focused on the self and not comparison to or competition with others
-Build a fun and positive community with their ballet-dance loving peers :)
I am a Licensed Zumba, Zumba Kids, and Zumba Kids jr. Instructor and have taught Zumba classes for four years. I have also taught ballet for over 10 years. I am a NYS certified Early Childhood and Special Education teacher with self-contained and general education classroom experience. My self-contained experience is mainly with students with Autism, ADHD, and speech impairments. I have a passion for working in inclusive settings with students who are neurotypical and neurodiverse. 
Each week after Ballet II (Intermediate Ballet) there will be suggested exercises/ballet steps posted on the classroom page with the option to share their photos or responses in the comments or to send them to me directly. These challenges will take 15-30 minutes each week. 
*Intermediate Ballet Students must have a water bottle or full glass of water nearby during class to stay hydrated* Materials: -Chair with a back or portable ballet barre (to hold lightly for balance) -Pillow and/or book to practice posture Optional Attire: -Leotard and tights or a well-fitting t-shirt with leggings, shorts, or well-fitting sweatpants -Long hair pulled back into a bun -Well-fitting ballet slippers If your child does not have the materials or proper attire, don't worry! Accomodations will be made to help your child participate fully.
Our Ballet II (Intermediate Ballet) class will have no formal assessment.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Be sure that ballet students are head-to-toes on camera when standing. Students should have water, room to move, comfortable clothing, and appropriate footwear. Students can wear ballet slippers, sneakers, socks, or bare feet. 

Parents may want to remain close by during ballet class to encourage attention and help with any technology issues that might arise. 

If any technological issues arise during class (ex: teacher is inaudible), parents can send me a message in the chat on Zoom and I will do my best to resolve the issue. 

This intermediate ballet class is great for students who are neurotypical, neurodiverse, have Autism, ADHD, speech impairments, dyslexia, Down Syndrome, and many other disability classifications. 

If a family has any special needs, comments, or concerns before or after class they can feel free to send me a private message on Outschool and I will do my best to accommodate to your satisfaction within 48 hours.
