Creative Ballet Teaching

Technique and Artistry for the 21st Century Ballet Dancer


How can ballet teachers foster a dynamic environment of collaborative learning, curiosity, and creativity in their classrooms? How can they encourage their students to not only refine their technique, but to better understand themselves as dancers, informing technique with their own personalities and styles? Creative Ballet Teaching draws on the fields of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis (L/BMA), dance pedagogy, human development, and somatic education to explore these questions. Sample lesson plans, class exercises, movement explorations and journal writing activities specifically designed for teachers help to bring these ideas into the studio and classroom. A complementary online manual, Creative Ballet Learning, provides students with tools for development, self-assessment, and reflection. Offering a practical, exciting new approach, Creative Ballet Teaching is a must-read for those teaching and learning ballet.
