Character Dance? No, it's not Mickey Mouse Technique!
Hello Dance Dreamers
Hope you are having a great day,
and if not, that it gets better quickly!
I know the struggles.
Some hints - a little essential oil in the mask is calming!
I also found the silicone cage in the mask keeps me from
inhaling the mask. Game changer.
This weeks free downloads are the letter "M"
from Vol.2 - A Ballet Alphabet.
I have also included the facing page from the book,
which has the definitions and biographies.
Last week, on a social site, the subject of character dance
came up. I thought sharing this page with you would
open up discussion on the subject with your students,
and introduce them to another style of dance,
if they haven't yet seen or heard of it.
I was trained early on in this style, and
performed for many years with two fabulous companies,
in Philadelphia and New York. I teach strictly
character classes, and also incorporate it into my weekly
ballet classes as a special treat for my students.
I saved some nice ballet character videos in my
YouTube playlist portal for the letter "M".

Consider Vol.2 - A Ballet Alphabet as a supplement
to your classes. The pages are great for take
homes after each class, or can be emailed and
shared with your virtual students.
Please share with me how you use the books
in class or at leisure! Would love to hear from you.
