Description

Class Experience

Students will learn Grade 1 Exercises from the NCDTA Ballet Syllabus.  They will also learn a Ballet Dance.
I have been teaching dance for over 25 years.  I am a qualified professional dance teacher holding my Ballet Teaching certificate with the NCDTA (Northern Counties Dance Teachers Association in the UK).  I have taught all ages of ballet from young to adult; also training other teachers.  I am currently the Children's Program Director of a Dance Studio in the USA.  Ballet is one of my favorite classes to teach!
Handouts with the Grade 1 Ballet Theory words will be provided weekly for students to learn.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners will be assessed (after uploading their videos) via written comments in the classroom/learner messages or video feedback.  Feedback will be of a positive nature offering tips for improvement.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please ensure children have enough space to move around while following along with the class videos.  Remove anything they may bump into or knock down (e.g. your expensive vase!)  

Class Attire:- Please wear appropriate free-moving clothes e.g. tee-shirt with leggings, leotard and wear either ballet shoes, bare-feet or non-slip dance socks while they are practicing.  Check the floor surface isn't slippery.  

Fitness:- Your child should be in a fit and healthy state.  Please check with your doctor if you have any concerns.

Barre Work:  There is barre work in the Grade 1 Ballet syllabus.  Your child does not need a barre for this.  They can use an 'imaginary' barre or a chair.

Instructional Videos will be uploaded (unlisted) to YouTube.  These will be embedded into the Outschool Classroom and do not require you to have a Youtube Account.
