4. Preballet Syllabus Introduction and Syllabus
4. Preballet syllabus, inleiding

Black = English
Rood = Nederlands

For kids ages 6-7 preballet is a preparation for formal ballet beginning at age 8 and older. This is a time to learn large motor skills while moving in musical phrases; practice following directions; hone memorization skills by remembering the order of the exercises; and learn cooperation by working in a group.

Voor kinderen in de leeftijd van zes tot zeven jaar is preballet een voorbereiding op het formele ballet van achtjarigen en ouder. Dit is de tijd om de grote motorische vaardigheden te leren terwijl de beweging de frasering in de muziek volgt; aanwijzingen te leren opvolgen; geheugen vaardigheden te verbeteren door de volgorde van de oefeningen te onthouden; te leren samenwerken in een groep. 

Work at the barre is minimal, just to help with balance. Divide barre time with rhythmic studies and creative movement to rhythm instruments, piano or other music.

Werken aan de barre is nog minimaal, alleen maar om te helpen met het evenwicht. Verdeel de tijd in werken aan de barre, ritme lessen en creatief bewegen op ritme instrumenten, piano en andere muziek.

If the class is one hour long I like to spend 10 minutes at the barre, 30 minutes practicing the center work and 16 rhythms, and 20 minutes exploring movement creatively without thinking about technique.

Als de les een uur duurt, besteed ik graag 10 minuten aan de barre, 30 minuten voor het oefenen op de dansvloer en 16 ritmes en dan nog 20 minuten om creatief beweging te verkennen zonder aan techniek te denken.
