This class is for students who have been dancing at least 4-6 months, and know the following steps and forms: -5 ballet positions (legs and arms) -Plié -Tendu -Dégagé -Battement -Piqué tap -Bourré Every week, we'll start with introductions, then we'll warm-up with 2 combinations at the barre (or chair). After that, we'll stretch and strengthen our muscles with simple exercises. Then we will learn a center combination, along with any new steps. We will learn individual movements as we put...
I have been dancing since I was three, and I have taken ballet the entire time. I've also helped teach dance classes for 1 and a half years. I have been trained in a pre-professional program that stresses technique and safety. I know the correct way to perform and teach exercises to ensure the least risk possible.
Students are expected to practice new steps outside of class
Water bottle Space to move around (at least 5x5 foot square) A chair to use as a barre Appropriate footwear (barefoot, socks, or ballet shoes depending on your floor) Tight-fitting clothes: a leotard and tights aren’t required, but you must wear leggings or shorts (no baggy pants), a form-fitted shirt, and have your hair out of your face.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be sent an informal evaluation for every 4-5 weeks they attend class
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Because this is a fitness class, students will need enough room to move around without injuring themselves. We will always do a warm-up and stretch before beginning, but it's important to be aware that inadequate stretching can lead to injuries. It is advisable for dancers to be barefoot to avoid slipping, and they may need a water bottle to stay hydrated. Note: if your student needs any accommodations for physical or mental needs, I am able and willing to accommodate and modify if I can! Just let me know your needs beforehand.
