I have been dancing since I was three, and I have taken ballet the entire time. I have interned to help teach dance classes for 1 and a half years, and have taught my own classes for a full year now. I have been trained in a pre-professional program that stresses technique and safety. I know the correct way to perform and teach exercises to ensure the least risk possible. I am recently certified in PBT (Progressive Ballet Technique), which uses supplementary exercises for strength in the correct ballet muscles. We learned how to perform the exercises correctly, as well as tricks to help our students (as young as 5 years old) perform the more basic exercises safely.
Students will be expected to practice the exercises throughout the week. This is necessary in strength training, and will make a difference in how quickly they progress.
NOTE: If you would like to try the class one week before buying the balls, most of the activities can be modified. Please let me know beforehand if you plan to do this, and if you choose to remain enrolled, please keep in mind that the balls are REQUIRED. EXERCISE BALL You need a large exercise ball for some of our activities. The ball is the right size if your student can sit on it, with their feet on the floor, and have their knees at a right angle. It is better to have a slightly bigger ball than a ball that is too small. You should also make sure you inflate the ball enough that it is firm (the ball should be inflated BEFORE class). Here is a height guide to use when buying a ball: If your student is.... Under 4'8"/142cm - 45cm ball 4'8" - 5'3" / 142-160cm - 55cm ball 5'4" - 5'10" / 160-178cm - 65cm ball 5'10" - 6'4" / 178-193cm - 75cm ball NOTE: If your student is 5 years old (even if they are 5 and a half), you MUST use a 45cm ball. I would search for this ball on Amazon by typing "exercise ball" and then the size your student needs. You should expect to pay about $10-$15 (in the US). I bought my ball on Amazon here for reference (make sure you choose the correct size!): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V6YTQ8F/ref=cm_sw_r_em_api_glt_fabc_BY1QX71NSNES41G4KF2B?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 FUSION BALL You will also need 2 smaller versions of the exercise ball. They should be around 20-23cm. You may be able to find one from a toy shop, but one ball MUST be inflatable because we will use it only partially inflated. When you fill that ball (BEFORE class) don't fill it completely. You can find a ball of this size at a toy store or Walmart, but you can also search on Amazon for the inflatable one. You can search for "fusion ball" or even "mini exercise ball." You should expect to pay about $5-$10 PER BALL (in the US). I bought my ball on Amazon here for reference (make sure you choose the correct size!): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MNLM734/ref=cm_sw_r_em_api_glt_fabc_HV0BBV2A8T3K30FA62GY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Students will be sent an informal evaluation for every 4 weeks they have attended class.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
PLEASE NOTE Because this is an exercise class, there is always a risk for injury. Especially if students have a previous injury, some exercises could inflame it, but it is also possible to fall off of your ball and injure yourself. You should also be careful if you have a small space, and drink plenty of water. I have small classes so that I can keep an eye on students and their technique, but I can't eliminate all risks, especially because I cannot physically move their bodies into the correct position. By signing up for this class, you understand these risks and are willing to participate anyway.
