Thursday,

Onward to choreography! Now that I have been able to talk to all of you about the dance concert and what your class will be doing, please listen to your music and be very familiar with it. Choreographing the piece will be much easier!

Our ballet barre and Pilates could be a little bit smoother. I know you are excited with all the great activities that we are doing, but try to stay calm so that we can cover a lot of wonderful things.

Have a great night!

Wednesday,
Some creativity with ballet choreography today. Some of the motif descriptors were used very well in your choreography today. Probably the class that was the most creative was third period. But the most improved class was first period!The other classes did well but were not as agressive in their learning today as those two classes.

We will continue our technique and includ more and more of the work on the dance concert. Bring your ideas if your classs is requiring them. Each class has different activities pertaining to the dance concert.

Have a great evening!

Tuesday,
Now the choreography begins! Don’t forget that the information about your class dance concert is on the “Pages” section. The music is from itunes.

More reminders: Monday is the Perfoming Arts Fair from 7-9. Be there! There are really no exceptions for you not being there. This fair coverd the entire south eastern region. You are lucky that it is here! If you would like to stay after school, and would like to order a Chick-Fil-A meal, turn in you form by the end of the day on Thursday to
Mr. Timmerman.

Plants will be delivered on Monday as well for those of you that sold them to make money for your account.

This Sat., the costume department is having a sale of some beautiful dresses for prom or maybe for Halloween. See my board in Dance Studio 2 for printed information.

Have a great night,

Monday,
Welcome back!! Today went pretty well. I realize that some of you did not participate in any physical activity over the break. Take it easy and pace yourself. The body heals when you are asleep so you might need to get more rest than usual. Also, keep that water coming into your body. This will help flush out the toxins in your body that are making you sore.

As we discussed today, we are into our new unit: choreography. We did a little bit of exploring and will build on this knowledge of today.

Have a great night and go see ComPAny at the Fair tonight if you get a chance.

Friday,
I hope you have had great day!

It is now time for your week away from classes and a time to relflect on how you have progressed this first six weeks. If you think you could have accomplished more during this first six weeks, when you return from fall break, bring it on! You can change your ways.

The next unit that we will be working on in ballet is choreography in ballet. Most of the choreographic tools you use in other styles of dance can be utilized in ballet. We will use this unit to work toward the dance concert!

Have a great break!

Thursday,
I cannot wait to see how you did your tests today! I hope you did well. If not, we will keep working until you get it and I will continue to find additional ways to help you.

Please try and remember some of the skills that you learned from ballet class today so that you can apply them when you return after the break.

Your URLs are due tomorrow!
Have a great evening!

Wednesday,
Are you ready for tomorrow’s unit test? Many of you are! After quizzing you individually, today and yesterday, most of you are ready. Learn from those experiences and review your notes or study. Some of you need to study more than other people. Let’s start off the year with all A’s!!

Class was good today. Keep in mind that your alignment is very important in ballet. Your goal is to keep the alignment while you are dancing, not only while you are working at the barre. As you are being pushed to improve, keep the training you have already had. In other words, don’t forget about all the previous information that you have learned!

Have a great night,
Ms. D
