Description

Class Experience

If students need help staying on task or working the computer or app, parents may wish to monitor from the same room or within sight distance for the first few lessons.  The room should be as free of distractions as possible and student should have at least a few feet to move around.  Jazz requires more room than tap, but can be done in a small space.  Please advise teacher in advance of any special needs or any recent injuries that will limit movement.  With over 23 years experience as a dance instructor, great caution is taken and skills will be appropriate for beginner students. Accidental falls, etc. can still happen and teacher is not responsible for any injuries that occur during the course of the classes.  
Students will be encouraged to practice newly learned skills at home to increase retention and skills.
Comfortable & appropriate clothing required for class. Recommended to pull hair up/back so that it is out of the face to make it easier to turn, etc.  No jean shorts or pants, as this restricts movement for jazz. 

Recommended clothing:  
-leggings and form fitting shirt or top (baggy tops or bottoms make it hard to give corrections for upper body placement and difficult to tell if their legs are bent or straight); alternatively leotard and tights are best, but not required

Optional:  
-tap shoes and tap board (1/4 inch cut of plywood 2' x 3')
-jazz shoes of any style or color
-barre or something like a chair to use as a barre for balance in tap warm ups
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
