I have been dancing for about 19 years and was trained in ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, and lyrical/contemporary. I have performed in various roles such as Sugarplum Fairy and Dew Drop in the Nutcracker and Wendy in Peter Pan. I have been teaching ballet since 2018. Prior to that I worked as a student teacher from 2012-2016 and a substitute dance teacher from 2016-2018. From 2018-2020 I was the Artistic Director/Executive Director for my colleges Ballet Company where I was tasked with choreographing/organizing performances and teaching classes.
Students should continue to practice the ballet terminology, pronunciation, and ballet steps outside of class time. Students should review choreography outside of class time.
-For the ballet barre portion of this class it is recommended that students use a ballet barre or something sturdy for students to hold on to such as a chair, counter, or table. -Wear comfortable exercise clothes that you can dance in such as tank top or t-shirt and leggings or ballet skirt and leotard and tights. (please no crop top) -If student wears a dress, they must have shorts or leggings under -Water close by for breaks

During class, I will provide students with feedback regarding the pronunciation of the ballet words and about the ballet steps to ensure they are completing each step properly and safely.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
