I hope that you are all keeping well in the current situation. I have been thinking about how we can achieve a way to incorporate dancing into our new normal and stay connected. I am planning on introducing some weekly ballet classes for small groups of children on ZOOM. I will be holding these sessions on weekday afternoons, the day and time will be confirmed once I have an idea of numbers.
Over the course of the coming days I will be sending each of you an email outlining the procedure. Once I have an idea of numbers I will allocate timeslots and passwords to allow you to access the session securely. Please note that at the present time I am not offering this class to Baby Ballet, however this may change in the future. Thankyou for your understanding.
I hope you are all well and coping with the situation we find ourselves in. This weekend would have been our first weekend at dancing after the Easter break. We would have been practicing the routines and getting ready for the summer displays
Your children are very well equipped to practice at home; for ballet they all know the excercises both on the barre and centre practice. If they would like to practice their Tap skills please make sure this is done on a wooden board – using Tap shoes outside really damages them.
Some top tips for Tap are all the shuffles, hop-down and ball-changes. Don’t worry, your children know what they are. Maybe they could teach you some Tap steps 🙂 For the older children, Time Steps and Maxi Ford have excellent tutorials on Youtube.
If anyone would like me to provide anything specific for their child, please email me and I will happily do so.
Teaching your children is a privilege and I look forwards to being able to do just that as soon as we are given the go ahead.
