In this ballet class students will start every class warming up their bodies in order to prevent injury. Warm ups will include a general stretch sequence as well as barre combinations. Every class the students will be taught new dance vocabulary and practice performing the steps together. Once the students feel comfortable with these new steps they will be given center floor combinations to perfect these moves. Combinations and steps from previous classes will always be reviewed in order to...
Students will learn new dance vocabulary and technique while having fun, getting some exercise, and expressing themselves. As this is a ballet course, students will learn specifically about ballet technique, but more importantly how to care for their bodies so they can stay active throughout their whole lives. The number one goal of this class is to spread the love of dance and performing arts and encourage creativity.
As a professional dancer myself, I have many years of experience and training in the world of dance. In addition to being a performer, I have training in physical therapy which ensures that I can help prevent dance related injuries in my students. I have been teaching both dance and wellness and recovery for many years now and am very excited to share this knowledge with the students of Outschool to make sure their learning experience is the best it can be.
No homework or outside activity is required, but always encourage your student to practice their skills as often as they like!
Ballet shoes are required for this course, as they are an important part of keeping dancer's feet safe, especially when dancing on floors in a home. Students must also have access to something that can substitute for a ballet barre. This could be any sturdy and elevated surface, such as a counter top or preferably a chair. Please have students wear clothing that is comfortable and easy to move in. Leotard and tights are recommended but not required. Students should have their hair pulled back away from the face so it won't get in the way while dancing (a classic ballet bun is always a good way to go). Water should be close by so the student can stay hydrated through out class, as water breaks will be given often. This course is designed to be done in the possibly restricted/small area of the home, but make sure the student has a flat, clean surface to dance on and that they will not hit anything in the surrounding area while dancing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental Guidance is always suggested for classes that are physically active, however this is not mandatory. As a teacher, I will be showing students how to dance with care and prevent injury. Please make sure your student has proper footwear and clothing, access to water, and a clear space to move before class begins in order to insure their safety.
