From ballet walks to bridge walks, this course is sure to have something for everyone to spark new joy, interest, & bring some fresh ideas into your dance classroom curriculum.
ALL SESSIONS TAKE PLACE AT 11:00AM EST
Session 1: Nov 7
This first session focuses on building a progressive ballet scaffolding for the beginning, intermediate, & advanced dancer. With plans to cover everything from adage to allegro; let’s start our dancers off on the right (or left!) foot.
Session 2: Nov 14
Session 2 dives into jazz patterns & phrases that can be incorporated into all levels of the dance studio classroom. Got a class of mixed level students? Let’s give them ALL the options & set them up for success. Some lyrical & contemporary options are infused in this portion, as well.
Session 3: Nov 28
Week three concentrates on tap progressions & patterns that can keep all of our students engaged, interested, & invested in our programming. Come for the grapevine flaps, stay for the stomp, stamp, & step rudiments. Tap classes shouldn’t be optional! Let’s get our students as enthused about tap dancing as we are!
Session 4: Dec 5
The final session focuses solely on AcroDance progressions & skills that can be executed across the mats/marley. Split rolls, cartwheels, and tabletops are always a hit. Anyone’s dancers need a little ‘inversion therapy’? This session will be sure to ignite & re-instill a passion for our students to be upside down! Strength, flexibility, balancing, limbering & tumbling will be covered. This class is also an excellent resource for those who may teach Modern Dance.
