March is our “Adult Ballet” month here at 4dancers. I teach an adult ballet class and I have to say it is one of the most fulfilling things I’ve done during all my time in dance. Adult students are passionate and hard-working. As I like to say–they are there because they want to be there. And the joy that I get from watching my students soar across the floor, master a step at the barre, or simply learn how to spot for turns–is truly something.
In the coming weeks you’ll hear from an adult ballet teacher who will offer tips on teaching this demographic and you will also hear the voices of those who take class themselves. Some of the people you’ll see have started blogs about their experience, while others are simply enjoying ballet class.
We’ll also have our regular content, including interviews, more from Jan Dunn on Dance Wellness, some insights from John Nevin on music and dance, our new column, “Finding Balance” by Emily Kate Long and another installment of “One Dancer’s Journey” by Todd Fox.
And if you have a moment–join us on Facebook and Twitter for additional content such as videos and links to other great dance resources. Also, be sure and sign up for our newsletter at the top right of the page here–it just takes a few seconds!
Thanks for reading.
