BE EARLY- 10 minutes is HIGHLY suggested: We start lessons on time.
Preparation and Stuff You’ll Need:
Something to hold onto: A portable barre, chair, etc.
Flooring: If possible, the optimum would be to get a roll of dance flooring and a sub-floor that has some give to it. A hard surface is not safe for jumps, but not everyone has a decent dance floor in their home. I've done modifications to the lesson plans to make sure the students stay safe and healthy. (Shin splints are not fun).
An Open Area to dance: A minimum 6 foot by 6 foot open area. We'll be doing barre work plus stationary center work.
An internet-capable device (phone, laptop, tablet) with a camera and microphone. The device needs to be far enough away and at waist height to get a full body view of you.
Wear something appropriate for a ballet lesson. If you look the part, you'll feel the part. Make sure it’s a contrasting color, so I can easily see you (Ex: If you’re in a dark room with black flooring, don’t wear black leotard and black tights!).
LIGHTING: Get the lights near the camera pointing towards you, rather than having a light source from behind you. Don't have lights or a window behind you.
Make sure you won't be distracted and that there's no noise in the immediate area for you.
