I am happy to report back with a review of the “Ballet Words of the Week” that I received from Dance Teacher Press in Dance Advantage’s giveaway back in February.
We were more then mid-year through our classes when I won the Words of the Week booklet, Ballet Combination Book and Ballet Step by Step. I brought all three tools into the studio for my teachers to use and I will say the one getting used the most is the Ballet “Words of the Week“, probably because it was the easiest to integrate into our syllabus.
The Words of the Week is made out of calendar-sized sturdy cardstock and is spiral bound. It fits nicely in a dance bag or it could be hung on a wall. We keep ours on our studio bookshelf. The colors are bright and not too girly, which was nice since I have a few boys at the studio. It includes 50 terms, which cover basics to more advanced vocabulary.
I ended up using the word booklet once a month with my Ballet I class and they always looked forward to it. This class is age 7-9 and it is their first year of ballet. I would bring out the book after our stretching time.
