Description

Class Experience

Our #1 goal is for dancers to have fun. Each class helps us gain confidence & develop personal style while increasing stamina, flexibility, musicality, and rhythm.
Ms Ellen has been a Radio City Rockette for six years! Her recent professional credits include the Broadway National Tour of "An American in Paris." Ms Ellen has directed & taught at ADTC overnight dance camps in Texas, Colorado & Maryland for 4 years. She has also directed & taught at multiple ADTC virtual dance camps in 2020 & 2021. Ellen has loved teaching ADTC Contemporary classes on Outschool and she can't wait to bring more girls together as a community with ongoing classes.

For 18 years, American Dance Training Camps ("ADTC") has offered the ULTIMATE overnight dance camp experience in beautiful locations nationwide. When life changed for all of us in 2020, we decided to "pivot" and use our expertise to create the ULTIMATE virtual dance experience. After 11 inspiring weeks of summer 2020 virtual dance camps, we're excited to offer more virtual dance classes & camps through Outschool.
On-demand video recordings are emailed after class, and dancers are encouraged to keep practicing at home, but the choreography we learn each week is new (so students can join our club at any time!)
For contemporary dance, we recommend traditional jazz shoes, lyrical half-soles, or dance paws/foot undeez. If safe in your space, dancers can also be barefoot or wear socks (or half-socks).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We can't wait to see your dancer online soon! Just a few logistics to help you feel more prepared (& excited) for a fulfilling virtual dance experience with us...

HOW TO SET UP YOUR PHYSICAL SPACE:
 
Find a space in your house that is quiet and uncluttered - preferably an "open" space with no obstructions and room to dance. For contemporary dance, hard wood floors are best, but we can also make a carpeted space work.

Add some sparkle to your space (optional, but makes class even more awesome!) - deck out your space with positive messages & personality just like we do at ADTC! You can create posters w/ a favorite quote or inspirational design, add flowers, balloons, etc. Get parents' permission first & camp rules apply - no glue or paint on walls!

CREATING A SAFE EMOTIONAL SPACE:
 
Here's how we foster an uplifting and positive environment during class:
 
1. No put-downs (to yourself or anyone else)
2. No negative body language (rolling eyes, etc.)
 
AUDIO/VISUAL SET UP:

Grab your laptop or mobile device and power plug. Prop your laptop/mobile device up on a chair or stacked books so you can view it well. Alternatively, if you have a projector and screen or way to connect your laptop to a TV screen, you can project the class up there.
 
Turn up the volume. Use your headphones if you prefer (just note that earbuds may fall out during class or get in the way). Adjust the lighting in your space as needed.

INTERACTING WITH YOUR VIRTUAL CLASSROOM:

Log into the Zoom Waiting Room at least 5 minutes before class so you may resolve any technical issues. If it is your first time using Zoom, login at least 15 minutes prior.
 
Use the dancer name you used to register so that we know who you are! Say "hi" when you arrive via chat or your mic if audio is on. We'll mute you while dance class is in session, so send us a chat if you have an issue hearing or seeing us.
 
After class, we'll unmute everyone so we can make new friends, answer questions and get feedback about how class went. When you're ready to head out after class concludes, just end the meeting.
