Online classes live streamed for dancers - Please Post

Recommended Posts

Just to add that I've signed up for Nina Thilas Mohs Floor Barre class tonight at 6pm and her ballet barre + short centre on Friday. These are charged for, but only £5 each and done via Zoom, so there'll be corrections - at a distance, but still, some feedback. You can find the details via Nina's Facebook page: Floor Barre London. Highly recommended

 

I've been enjoying Sander Bloemmart's lovely clean precise technical barre - really well pitched for a range of standards of dancers. He's a really good teacher - thinks through the way the bare connects each exercise, and does a tiny bit of challenging centre work in terms of balance and alignment. Sometimes the simple stuff is the hardest. But it's weird doing class without specific corrections!

Having posted this in a different thread, I now see it hasn't been mentioned here, so:

 

David Kierce has moved his regular classes online.  They cost £7 and are at the same times as his usual Absolute Beginner and Beginner/Improver classes at Central School of Ballet.

 

https://www.beginneradultballet.com/online-classes-1

 

I asked about the format of the class (bearing in mind I often attend his classes in person, but live in a small flat and obviously don't have sprung flooring or anything) and he said it's a barre and some stretching, and he's teaching from the corner of a tiny studio flat!

 

I will definitely also look at Friday morning's ENB class with Sarah Golightly, as I was meant to be taking her Tuesday evening class starting from next week!

I’d like some advice regarding online classes for my children please. I’ve seen plenty that do Instagram/Facebook live classes and also some that offer zoom classes. Would zoom classes be better as they’re more interactive or doesn’t it matter?

@ponklemum my school are doing daily zoom classes and I find it so much better than the livestream as the teacher can see you and give you personalised corrections. It's also a really nice atmosphere as others are 'in the studio' too. 

 

But I do like doing live classes for fun at the weekend ! So really just pick whatever suits best x

Northern Ballet has issued a video of Viki Westall, who is a member of the faculty at the NB Academy, doing a simple "kitchen" Pilates session:

Webcam pointing in the general direction, mirror positioned, nice indoor barre assembled with pleasing wooden furniture for online adult class!! Now, ballet online etiquette, will I be allowed to position barre and camera just right when I work the other side.. I suspect not. I suspect any IT adjustments will be allegro. Hmmm...

A few technical issues but awesome, really, really good to be moving to music again. Way beyond my level but woah... do I feel more heightened after an hour doing barre work and porte de wotsits.

Whose class did you do, Alexander?

 

 

Lisa Beaumont School of Ballet, adult class. Not generally advertised, as far as I know, but made welcome dispite my classical ballet inexperience and strange Baroque ways.

 

I'm particularly liking the exploration of fondu and port de bras, posture etc

Does anyone know of any good jazz or contemporary classes that are streaming at the moment? I am getting some really good ballet classes at the moment but I miss other genres :(

insta / fb live is purely follow along  - no two -way interaction  or  i nthe case of FB live  you can send text comments back 

zoom / skype / webex  is potentially  a fully interactive experience   as would a group FB messenger chat ( this is different to FB live video)

both on insta: Adam Scott and Graeme Pickering have both piqued DD's enthusiasm. Also Hannah Martin of BBC Greatest Dancer choreographs and teaches beautiful routines.

Dd has tried quite a few and is now just doing the regular 12.00 class by Ballet Skirts by Lucinda on Instagram- apparently it’s just right.

Does anyone know if there's going to be another Everybody Ballet Instagram live stream, and if so, when it is? My internet detective work has been fruitless so far!

If you're looking for online classes, do pop over to the News and Information forum and look at the coronavirus lockdown thread - quite a few of the companies are putting on online classes at all sorts of different levels, too.

And from the Today's Links forum - worth keeping an eye on to see how people are managing to keep their dancing going - an article on some of the online classes around, of varying levels from beginner to pro:

Ponklemum - I reiterate that students should be guided by their regular teacher at their dance school or associate programme. These teachers know your child and most are offering some way of giving feedback either by doing age appropriate zoom/skype classes or as in my case (as I've had the virus and been too ill to teach) I'm having video sent to me from students and giving feedback by email or video message.

 

A LOT of the online offerings are not designed for children, nor are they taught by people who are used to working with children (ie they are used to working with advanced students and professionals and both physically and mentally, children are NOT mini adults!).
