Complete with syllibi for each of the three years of beginning ballet instruction, this book helps beginning ballet teachers enter the studio with knowledge and confidence. It begins with the basics of how to prepare for teaching and follows with what to do on the first day of class and how to model terminology and demonstrate positions. Helpful, age-appropriate photographs accompany the outlines of each level of study, and novice instructors are able to adapt each syllabus to the needs of their students. From demonstrating the five positions of the feet and using French terminology to teaching exercises on pointe, this guide is perfect for helping dancers transition into dance teachers or refreshing the skills of current dance instructors.
