Hello, and Welcome Back!
This week we have three beginner ballet dance lessons to inspire your inner swan, or whatever role you aspire to. All of these lessons are available for you to experience for FREE on YouTube.
To start with, this video featuring Royal Ballet School trained ex Professional Ballerina, Kimberley Berkin shares 5 of the basic feet positions you will encounter in ballet class. This is for those of you who are brand new to ballet, or are returning after a break and would like a reminder.
Beginner Ballet Barre
In this video, Miami City Ballet soloist Kathryn Morgan shares a full barre for beginning level ballet students, but is also great for advanced dancers who want to work on their technique.
Conditioning for Ballet
For a simple stretch, this video shares a follow-along stretch routine that targets leg, hip, and back flexibility, followed by my follow-along video for stretching and strengthening your feet for dancing.
All of these lessons are available for FREE on YouTube. If there is a channel you love, remember you can subscribe to show your support and to start building your own archive of lessons.
If you need a place to take notes on your online dance classes, I’ve made a free Dance Video Log available for you on my Resources Page.
