Ballet Dances for School Age Kids by Susan Kramer
Description: Four complete lively ballet dances for ages 5 to 12 and any number of students. Many piano musical selections suggested, or use rhythm instruments such as the tambourine. Each dance gets progressively longer and more advanced. Academic benefits of learning ballet listed. Companion to my textbook: Classical Ballet Beginning to Advanced. 1,800 words. PDF is 16 pages. I recommend buying the PDF version so it can be printed out and 3-hole punched into a binder for ease in teaching the dances
