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!). 


Apologies if I missed you saying it earlier. Thank you for your advice and I hope you feel better soon.

absolutely spot on , as is usual ... 

some of the pro classes being streamed are very good at giving that  firm advice   ( i know  Ms Rojo's class mentions this and Dan  De Andrade has mentioned this aobut his  insta streamed class )

RAD website now has children's conditioning exercises at 3 different age/grade appropriate levels taught by Jane Tucker. Actually I'm going to do the Grade 5+ set of exercises - it looks very thorough and well explained.

No live classes yet,  but Martin Howland who is a director of Renaissance Arts in Leeds, has put ballet videos on YouTube and is hoping to live stream soon. 

He's called it Howly Ballet.

 

Looks good so far.

 

Martin Howland is now live streaming excellent classes on Instagram (Howlyballet) every Tuesday and Thursday at 4.

Jane is a fabulous teacher  regardless of the age or  level of of the class ...  

i've only briefly looked  at the videos in question but i suspect that most  adults would  benefit from if not enjoy the  11 +   / g5 +  set

And for something slightly different, contemporary classes in Paul Taylor technique, repertory, Pilates and so on - mainly at or near professional level, by the looks of things:

I have just done the 11th and last of the Dutch NB series with "...thank you, Rex". I will miss Ernst's barre, thank you, Rex, and also their excellent production values. No "what did Tamara say again?" with them.

I finished the series of classes recently as well, loved them! They are the perfect length and focus on a lot of different things, definitely recommend! Though I struggled with some of the long Fondu exercises 😂 xx

One of my favourites too.  Ernst is a real inspiration, not just the technique, but also his way of delivering the class. I feel he has made me a better teacher.

That's a point: not only is all this potentially inspirational for dance students, but it also gives teachers a chance to see what's happening elsewhere, and to apply it to their own methods of teaching.  Perhaps we'll end up with more "fusion" of ideas?

Another series of classes I enjoy are on a fb group Dance Accepts Everyone. They are given by two dancers, Anamarie and Adam of Orlando ballet. Much more "jolly" but excellent content.
