Class Experience

This class is designed to build upon the fundamentals of ballet barre work and build control through body awareness. Ballet I can be retaken as often as desired to perfect the techniques as lesson plans evolve each month. The recommended time in Ballet I is a minimum of one (1) year before advancing to Ballet II - unless assessed otherwise. 
I have been studying dance for 25 years with 8 years as an educator and I'm a firm believer that ballet sets all dancers up for success! Ballet teaches dancers control, precision, and self-discipline while providing both physical fitness and mental stimulation. I love how calming and poetic this discipline is while building confident dancers for life.
Dancers are encouraged to practice their posture, stretches, and technique every day.
 2 files available upon enrollment
Dancers will need access to: • a sturdy chair/dresser/counter to use as a "barre" • a smooth surfaced floor (wood, laminate, tile, etc) Great additions: • leotard, tights, and ballet flats for ladies | t-shirt, leggings, and ballet flats for gentlemen • hair neatly pulled back away from the face
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
During the 4th class of each session, dancers will be asked to reproduce combinations with limited visual cues to assess developmental knowledge.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please ensure your dancer has a clean space that is free of distractions.
