This is one of my lecture videos from my Pre-Pointe curriculum! It will be available for purchase and download on or around July 12th.
How does the pre-pointe curriculum work?
There are 6 lessons that are completed throughout the school year or semester. Repeat the lesson weekly until the student has gained the skills and the strength to move to the next lesson
In the curriculum, you get:
6 pre-pointe lesson plans with all combinations, variations, and exercises written out and recorded on video
skills checklist to assess students before moving them to the next lesson
personal assessment handouts to help students identify their strengths and weaknesses
digital handouts to print out for your students, including a pre-pointe handbook for students, exercise trackers, strength worksheets, self-reflection guides, and anatomy coloring pages
access to all mini-lectures (a great way to start your class and get conversation started) Each lesson has 4-6 videos just like this.
my pointe-readiness "tests," plus pointe assessment handout, which will help you identify if your dancers are ready for pointe!
I've been editing and developing this curriculum for almost 8 years now, and have had so much success with it! I can't wait to share it with you. There is another sample on my YouTube page!
