Tuesday,

For those of you that I taught today, I want to mention the video resource that I used today. telegraph.co.uk…you can search for the video by placing Mariinsky Ballet class in the search field and it will appear. Be sure and read the article. Very informative.

For your class, I continue to see very good focus and good work. We are still working on the alignment at the barre and cleaning up the transitional steps in the center.

Have a great evening!

DON”T FORGET YOUR PA CONTRACTS! Deadline is Friday.

If you have not turned in your dance contract that was due last Friday, don’t be surprised if we ask you to sit out. You should not be dancing. Those were due last Friday and you ARE ALREADY behind the rest of the class! Don’t get left behind.

Good work today! We will continue to work on the brise (last e has an accent) in first and third and the ballet triplet in second. 4th period will continue to work on the ballonne compose and the en des dans pirouettes.

Tomorrow, we will meet in the same studios as we did today with the same type of class. Wednesday we will switch rooms. By the end of  the week, schedules should be set. The administration is working on balancing the classes. Thanks for your patience and hard work!

Have a great evening!

Good morning,

I have added a page called “Ballet Body Positions Worksheet” for your reference. We will be using this in class on Friday. I already have a copy for you but this is will be available for you if you ever need an additional copy. It is not a very good copy, but could work in an emergency!

Friday, you will need to dress in your jazz attire. Ms. Edwards and I will be splitting the class time between us! You will have half of the class period with her and half with me.

Have a great day!

Wednesday,

Good job today! You all did very well today. I realize that some of  you were challenged beyond you wildest hopes and others were probably not challenged as much as you would have liked to have been challenged. Please remember that we are still observing you and trying to figure out what each one of you need.

Quick reminder: Don’t forget your forms are due asap..dance deadline is THIS Friday.

Friday, you will need your jazz attire. You will spend half of the class time with Ms. Edwards and half of the time with me.

Have a great evening and I look forward to teaching the next group tomorrow.

Good morning, I wanted you to know that I have posted two coupons on this blog under pages. All you would need to do is print the coupon and take it to the store. Both of the coupons provide a 15% discount.

Today, I will observing you in class to see where you are in your training. This provides me with information of how far I can challenge you this year……and where you would like to go with your training this year. Do you best and I promise, I will challenge you!

Have a great day!

Tuesday,

I hope you had a great day! Just a reminder, we are dancing tomorrow. Please remember your groups. If you forgot what style dance you will be dancing tomorrow, bring both colored tights. If you don’t have your dance clothes, bring something you can move in. We have a lot to do tomorrow as class is shortened due to home room but we need to see you in action for placement.

Have a great night and dream about dance.
