Description

For adults who have never taken a ballet class before…You need to take this course first, before you go to your first class. Here’s why:Walking into the typical adult beginner level ballet class can be a bit like visiting a foreign country where you do not speak the language. This is because unless you are enrolled in an absolute beginner class where every student has never taken a ballet class before, it is extremely unlikely that the teacher will have the time to explain the basic information that you need to know.As a teacher and a retired professional ballet dancer, I still attend ballet class regularly. I take beginner ballet classes, despite having been professional, because of my age. Whether I am teaching beginning ballet, or attending beginner ballet class, I see the same problem recur over and over again.A beginning student with no prior experience walks in, takes class, is overwhelmed, and never returns to ballet class again. This is a true shame, because, while beginning studies in ballet can be initially overwhelming, once you understand the basics it becomes enormously rewarding, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally, as well.“All You Need to Know Before You Begin Ballet Class” is designed to provide you with all of the basic information that you need to be prepared before you go to your first ballet class, so that you can enjoy the experience and you can organize both your body and your mind to make the most of your studies.In four 40-45 minute lessons plus one 70 minute lesson, this course covers everything from the practical issues of what to wear to class and how to hold the barre, to the essentials of basic ballet, to the structure and routine of class, to how to approach ballet class mentally.Ballet is a practice, and it promotes not only physical wellness, it promotes emotional wellness, too. There is also something else about ballet that you might not know, and that is that ballet is not only great for your body, but it is fantastic for your brain! Ballet is a bit like doing crosswords with your body. The central activity of ballet class is to learn patterns and reverse patterns, using both sides of your brain.So, if you are interested in beginning ballet but have no prior experience, do not go into your first class unprepared!
