My name is Mrs Laura and I’ve been working as an educator and dance instructor for the last 10 years. I was trained classically for over 14 years in many styles including Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Jazz and Tap. With a college degree in Sociology and Education, my unique teaching style emphasizes creating clear, concise patterns for students to learn dance steps quickly and easily. I like to explain my dance steps in ways that reinforce auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning. This alleviates frustration and makes learning fun and exciting. I also believe the words of Aristotle who says, “Education of the mind, without education of the heart, is no education at all.” So, all of my classes are filled with lots of social and emotional support. I want all of my students to walk away from my classes excited, confident and ready to share what they have learned with others. This is what makes learning to dance so fun!
After the class is completed, students will be encouraged to perform and share what they have learned with family and friends. While this is optional, performance is a huge part of the dance learning process. I encourage parents to setup Zoom or FaceTime calls with family to show off their child's new dance skills. The best part of learning to dance is being able to share it with others! 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Prep for you class! Take note of the things listed below to ensure the best learning experience:  
- Class will begin promptly at the designated start time. Be sure to log in a little early to avoid technical issues. In order to provide good teaching practices, the instructor will not be able to help you with individual technology concerns. 
- Students should set up for class in an open space. They will need room to move around without bumping into any furniture or large objects. It is also a good idea to remove toys or other clutter from the dancing area. Legos/Barbie Shoes hurt to step upon and books are easy to slip on. So be sure their area is safe to move around in. 
- This class can be learned on a soft or hard floor surface (carpet, tile, wood, etc). However, be sure that the floor is not too slick where your child could easily fall. 
- Students should dress in comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. Proper dance attire (leotard, tights, ballet skirt) is also welcome, but not required. 
- Students should pull all hair up and away from their face and secure it with a hair tie or other hair accessories. 
- Students may use proper dance shoes for this class (leather/canvas ballet slippers). However, these are not required. Bare feet would also be appropriate. 
 - This class will include warm up, cool down, stretching, and injury prevention. As with any exercise class, parents are encouraged to monitor student activity. Please note that you are solely responsible for your child's safety and well-being. The instructor will not be responsible for any injury in or outside of class time. 
- Feel free to keep water nearby for your child. Students will be given short breaks during the lesson, but feel free to take a break at anytime as needed. This is your class time and it should be comfortable for you. 
- This list has included a lot of heavy information. Please note that encouragement and praise are the most important part of the learning process. You, as a parent, have the wonderful authority to influence your child's excitement while learning something new.  Encourage your child throughout their learning process, and remind them that learning new things can take time/practice. I will encourage this too, but sometimes hearing if from parents can reinforce comfortable learning environments. 
The dance routine for this class is performed to 'All the Tea in China' by Shane Ivers.
