A summary
The first half of the lesson will be spent learning ballet. Pupils will be following the ISTD syllabus and in these sessions will practice first and second position, plié and skipping and galloping. First Position of the feet Possibly the easiest of the basic ballet positions is first position in ballet is a position of the feet where a dancer is standing with their heels together and toes facing equally out to either side. For a beginner, its best just to think of the heels as needing to touch, but for more advanced dancers, no more than 2 inches should be between the heels. Unless in a plié, the legs are straight. The feet and legs should also be equally turned out. Second Position of feet Continuing with our ballet positions, we come to second position which is very similar to first, just with the feet about hip distance apart. The same ideas as first position are true for second, where you want to have the feet and legs equally turned out. It's important not to have your second position too wide that its not useful, or too narrow that it looks closer to a first position. Plié Plié is when a dancer is basically bending at the knees. They are typically done in 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th positions in classical ballet, both at the barre and centre in classes. Correct use and development of a plié is a basic but essential movement to a dancer’s technique. Pliés are often seen before and after many more advanced steps. They act as a sort of springboard for all jumps and are an important key for turns. Additionally, a correct and functional plié is necessary for smooth transitions between movements. Most importantly, a plié helps provide the proper cushioning when landing from jumps, keeping the dancer from becoming easily injured and able to dance very long ballets and dances. The movement and position of a plié is seen throughout every form of dance. Skipping and galloping Pupils will practice movements they already make in the playground and at home but will be help them to make them more uniform and balanced. Street Dance Street dance at this age is more freestyle and contemporary, we will teach them age appropriate moves that come easily to them at this tender age. All movements will compliment both disciplines.

What you’ll need
Dance Uniform is designed to be a safe and practical outfit for your child to dance in. Having a dress code cuts down on distractions in the classroom and allows the teacher to see a dancers alignment and posture in order to make corrections. Wearing a uniform creates a sense of unity and belonging within the studio. Feeling like part of one big dance family creates a sense of pride and is a wonderful way for students to strive to be the best dancer they can be and show support for their peers. When all students are wearing a uniform, it prevents cliques or little groups forming as students feel they are part of one big team rather than smaller friendship circles. For this group we would like the children to wear:-
Learning aims
Aim 1
Dance can help in strengthening the brain alongside improving cognitive abilities in children.
Aim 2
When a child dances, they learn about how their body can move. ... Dancing uses different muscles than simply standing and walking around does, which strengthens them. Through dance, children learn to coordinate and control their bodies and the movement helps them develop spatial awareness.
Aim 3
Ballet is one of the most effective ways of releasing built-up energy and due to its calming effects, it enables children to focus, leading to better performance which transfers to other aspects of their life.
