Beginner Ballet for Teens!

A lot of beginner level classes in Ballet are aimed toward the young child, and don't give opportunities for teenagers to begin. That ends today! Learn the basics of Ballet, in an age appropriate class.

Class Experience

Students will learn the fundamentals of Ballet. This will include the 5 positions and the 8 directions of the body. It will also include the basic Ballet vocabulary that assists with balance and alignment. They will understand the importance of their core, as well as how to properly execute a port de bras. We are working towards being comfortable executing proper turns by the end of the sessions.
I currently hold my Bachelor of Arts degree in dance from the University of New Hampshire, 2009.

I have been teaching for 17 years. Inside studio settings, and within schools. I currently own my own dance studio, and have experience teaching at both the recreational levels and competitive levels. I have taught in the United States, and also have began programs abroad. I have been dancing for 30 years, and absolutely love it! 
There will be very little homework. On occasion there is some independent research I will recommend for further knowledge and insight into the dance world. The main homework will be to practice and review what we did in class to improve flexibility and strength.
-A chair or something to hold onto for balance. -Ballet shoes, or socks that you won't slip around in. -Ballet leotard, or comfortable athletic wear.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The learner is assessed every 10 weeks with a written report. It outlines everything they have done, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and if they should move to a higher level class.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Occasionally injuries do occur when dancing. They are rare, but can happen when participating in physical activity. I carefully guide, assist, coach and watch during the activity to help prevent any injury.
None at this time. However, as class continues I will give them sites that correlate with the lesson of the week.
