    Books about ballet

    Safe Dance Practice (Edel Quin et. Al) is good for a basic coverage of dance science related topics!

    If you had 2 hours to teach a kid to couru...

    You could try to get her sit down on the floor with her legs stretched out in front of her. Ask her to wiggle her knees. If she can manage to do it sitting she is more likely to be able to do it standing up. I have found it to be helpful, so it might be worth a try.

    For sale: 2 fleece Sansha warm ups

    Is it possible to have a picture of the maroon one please?
  8. I am planning a lesson that is going to consist of fun games that encourage strength, flexibility and cardio for young ballet students. Have you got any ideas or experience with games/exercises they might enjoy? Many thanks!

    Coupé jeté en tournant tips?

    The step travels so I like to think of the upper body (hips/waist and up) traveling forwards as well. Might sound very obvious, but it is easy to forget about it when one has several other things to remember.

    Coupé jeté en tournant tips?

    Also remember to bring your upper body and arms with you. I.e. turning to the right = bring your left shoulder around and keep the arms collected.

    Ballet dictionary

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/ol/0500277397/ref=olp_tab_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new This one is lovely! It has all the classics in it and comes with a short libretto and some nice pictures from the 'famous' parts of each ballet. I.e. Rose adagio from The Sleeping Beauty!
  12. I love the Gaynor Minden ones in microfiber, however, they're quite expensive compared go other brands.

    WANTED: RAD Advanced 1 DVD/CD ballet please!

    What details would you like to have? Type in RAD or Royal Academy of Dance to the AppStore and download it. The grades are priced the same as the DVDs I'm currently using it for teacher training and it is great!

    WANTED: RAD Advanced 1 DVD/CD ballet please!

    The App has got the new syllabus for Pre-Primary to G5 and the vocational grades Inter Found - Adv2 and kept the old (still running) G6-8. It is great as you can download it to a tablet or smart phone and bring it with you if needed However, I've had some trouble with a couple of the grades and it took some effort to get it to work. The app has been a great tool once it worked though !!
