With the help of a doll or stuffy, learners will pique and plie through Thumbelina: a whimsical tale set in enchanted gardens and forests. We will begin with a lite technical warm up that includes an introduction to French ballet terminology, then move on to dancer + doll partner stretches. After listening to the story, we will pause to discuss and ensure the plot is clear, as narrative ballets can sometimes be murky.

This class includes music appreciation, a literature discussion, guided self expression activities, and foundational ballet movements. It aims to be a well rounded, multi faceted experience of the culture of ballet, not just the steps.
I teach doll + me yoga at American Girl Place here in Chicago, and have led creative ballet programming in schools, daycares, and community centers for nearly a decade.
Any doll or stuffy will do!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please ensure dancers have a few feet to move safely in all directions. Dancers will be most successful in stretchy clothing they are comfortable in: leggings, t-shirts, leotards, tights, shorts, etc. Socks or ballet shoes recommended
