Ballet class instructors teach basic ballet principles to the children together with other creative movement activities. Instructors aim for a progression from the beginning of the semester to the end from introduction to basic ballet steps to integrating those into longer exercises that allow students to explore creativity in a fun environment. At the beginning of each term instructors organize a letter to send to parents, compile a list of students, and collect registration forms and checks from the parents. About an hour of prep time is required before the first and last classes. There are two classes each week (45 minutes each) and 10 classes for each level per semester (20 in total). About 10 to 12 students participate in the classes.
Previous dance instruction and experience with young children preferred.
Competency in ballet required.
Pay rate is based on the number of participants.
