Description

Class Experience

Students will continue to 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. The first few weeks we are re-introducing basic turns and jumps, and we will be adding on difficulty as the weeks progress. They will understand the importance of their core, as well as how to properly execute a port de bras. They will be able to combine several Ballet steps at once to execute technically correct Ballet combinations.
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 maybe some time 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.
