What to Expect from your class

  Preschool (ages 4-5) (6-8)


Important concepts

• Dancing while looking in the mirror; moving side to side, forwards and backwards while looking in the mirror, or toward the front of the room at the audience or instructor • Recalling basic choreography with verbal but not visual assistance, unless hearing disabled (for example: "your turn to do skips!" and student is able to do skips without a reminder of what a skip is) • Listening to the music (mimicking quiet music with soft movements, and loud busy music with bigger and faster movements)

Vocabulary and Technique • Rotate the legs open to turn-out • First and Second position • Sauté in first and second • Echappé sauté • Plié in First and Second (I say "Diamond" and "Houses") • Relevé (I say "Elevator Up") • Tendu (I say "Point-Tendu") • Temps-lié prep (Rocking between the legs, I say "Swirling ocean waters") • Chassé into the ground (I say "Ice-skate chasse") • Skips on both feet • Gallops on both feet going sideways and forwards • Leap on both legs • pas de chat parallel (can introduce side to side depending on students – I say “knee, one-two”)           Graduation Requirements: None
