Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
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-loving peers :)
I am a NYS Certified Teacher, Licensed Zumba Kids Teacher, and have studied and taught ballet for many years. 
Each week there will be suggested exercises 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. 
*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.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Be sure that 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 (carpet only), or bare feet (if only option!). 

Parents may want to remain close by 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 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.
