Description

Class Experience

Ballet students will build a foundation of ballet technique that will allow them to either pursue more advanced classes or simply improve their confidence, body awareness, strength, posture, and flexibility. 
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 enjoy teaching dance classes in diverse, inclusive settings. 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. 
No formal homework will be assigned from our Beginner Ballet Class. Optional ballet "challenges" will be shared on the classroom page.
Appropriate attire for ballet class: -Comfortable pants/t-shirt -Leggings and a tank top -Leotard and tights Appropriate footwear for ballet class: -Ballet slippers -Sneakers -Socks -Bare feet Ballet students should have a glass or bottle of water within reach during class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment from our Beginner Ballet Class. 
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time 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 (make sure they can move and dance in what they are wearing). 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. 

If a family has any special needs, comments, or concerns before or after ballet 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. 

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