A. If you're new to the Ballet Skills online intensive, sign up for Volume 1. This course covers the foundations that you'll need for further study, building up strong muscles and great lines.
If you've already taken Volume 1, sign up for Volume 2. In this course, you'll learn more movements, turns, and combinations.
If you've already taken Volume 1 but you want to do it again before doing Volume 2, email Rosa for a special discount code for 25% off the Volume 1 + Volume 2 combo.
A. Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 are 4-week courses that will run simultaneously starting January 15, so both new and continuing students can jump into the course of your choice in the New Year. You'll get the lessons for whichever one you choose when you sign up below.
If you want to do Volume 1 and then Volume 2, we have a package for you! Choose the first registration option below. You'll get the lessons for Volume 1 starting January 15, then you'll have a 2-week break to catch up or review, and Volume 2 will start on February 26.
A. Yes! Ballet beginners are most welcome. People of all genders, body types, and backgrounds are welcome to join in learning these skills.
This online intensive will introduce the most basic principles of ballet, and how they apply to certain aspects of belly dance. You don't need to have any ballet experience at all.
Those with ballet experience will be reintroduced to the basics from a different perspective--which is also very helpful to belly dance teachers!
A. Participants will receive assignments by email three days a week for four weeks, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The time commitment for each assignment is 20-30 minutes.
A. Your email assignments will contain special links to watch the password-protected videos on Vimeo.com.
The videos will be available to stream at your leisure OR you can download them for offline use. You can do the assignments at any time, so people in all time zones can participate.
A. You can do the assignments the day they arrive in your email inbox--or you can make your own schedule! You won't miss an assignment as long as you keep them in your email, so you can easily catch up.
A. There are three options: Self Study, Accountability, and VIP Feedback. (See the details above!)
If you choose Option 1 Self Study, you do not need to turn in your assignments. This course consists of physical assignments for your growth and advancement. You can do the exercises at your own pace as the videos will remain accessible for at least 6 months.
If you choose Option 2 Accountability or Option 3 VIP Feedback, you have six weeks from the course start date to complete the assignments and upload your videos. With both of these options, you can earn a certificate of completion for this Grace Academy module!
A. If you choose Accountability (Option 2) or VIP Feedback (Option 3) you can upload your videos as private or unlisted links on YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Drive.
A. Leggings and a tank top or sports bra are recommended. This will allow you to see the lines or your ankles, legs, and hips, which are very important elements of this course for both aesthetic and safety reasons.
Leather or canvas ballet slippers are recommended to help with turns and foot rotations, but you can also wear non-grippy socks. This course does not cover pointe (aka toe) work.
If you are uploading videos, please wear fitted clothing. Anything flowy or baggy will obstruct Rosa's ability to see your movements clearly.
To purchase ballet slippers, typically $15-$25, you can visit your local dance supply store for a fitting (recommended), or use code TP49115 to get 10% off at Discount Dance Supply. Be sure to read the size charts carefully! Ballet slippers should fit more like socks than shoes.
