An update on Ballet in Small Spaces classes happening via Zoom…

The Monday 5.30-7.00pm Kitchen class series continues up to and including Monday 8th June; after which a new series will begin, details to be posted.  However this week on Thursday 21st May I am resuming my previously regular Ballet in Small Spaces Thursday 10.00-11.30am morning class, aimed at experienced dancers of intermediate to advanced level, to see if this provides a viable and useful alternative for people.  Please email to let me know if you would be interested to join this class and I will send you an invitation for the series which will last till early July.  As with the Monday Kitchen classes, there is a suggested contribution of £5 per class.  Please do pass the word to any colleagues or students who might be interested, with the message that people should contact me with any concerns about affordability.

Meanwhile for those who prefer to take their time in learning and work at their own pace, the Enchainement of the Day series continues on YouTube; check them out here and give them a go!  This is an evolving work in progress, so comments, feedback, requests and even likes would be greatly appreciated…

Following last week’s experiment I will be teaching Kitchen Class by Zoom on Monday 27th April 5.30pm till 7.00pm. The plan is that this Monday open class of approximately Intermediate level will continue on a regular basis until early June; and as necessary from then onwards. In order to cover costs I would like to request that those attending each class make a suggested donation of £5.00.
A big thank you to those who attended last week for your very helpful feedback; I hope that lessons learned from this will help the class to run more smoothly and give you all a better experience. Getting the best from this medium is a work in progress…
If you would like to attend, please drop me an email soonest and I will send you an invitation and payment details. If you are worrying about being able to pay please let me know.
Looking forward to meeting up for class tomorrow,
Take care and stay safe!

I am taking the plunge – and will be teaching class live online from my kitchen via Webex on Monday 20th April at 5.00pm. This will be an approximately intermediate level class, with options to do simpler or more complex versions of the enchainements and to accommodate your particular environment, and will probably last 1 hour 15-30 minutes.
This is new territory for me. There will therefore be no charge for this class, but I would really appreciate feedback afterwards on how it works for you. I hope that I can continue to offer this on a regular basis while we are all locked down, and there would in future be a nominal charge.
If you would like to join Kitchen Class please contact me at susiecrow@gmail.com and I will send an invitation with a link…

I will be continuing to post an Enchainement of the day as regularly as possible on YouTube for those that prefer to work in their own time and at their own pace. You can find all those posted so far on the Ballet in Small Spaces YouTube channel here.

Taking this opportunity also to flag up Ségolène Tarte’s tremendously helpful blog post on her Dancing Convolutions blog here about doing classes at home; not only providing wise advice about safe practice, but also a great list of tried and tested suggestions for classes in different styles and formats:

I can completely endorse her recommendation of the lovely warm-up she found by dancers from the Slovenian National Theatre, accessible to all, just follow along here and enjoy, an uplifting way to start the day…

See you in class…
