“The Ballet Coach” presenting the technique and art of ballet.
Knowing how to use these tools successfully requires more than being a devotee of the technique; it also requires the mastering of various skills. We aims to share our extensive knowledge of how to teach rather than focus exclusively on what to teach. We argues that it is not enough for a ballet teacher to be well trained in technique, but that he or she must also know how to utilize pedagogical skills.
In this book, Aaron – an expert in multiple ballet methods – covers all areas involving dance, from history to injury prevention, from anatomy and kinesiology to vocabulary and music. He even offers pragmatic advice on the business of starting a dance school. The result is an essential addition to every dance teacher's library.
