The upper levels of classical ballet training begin with the Ballet Arts: Classical Ballet 1 Book. Within this curriculum, the student will begin to learn to function in a traditional ballet classroom setting, perfect classwork at the barre, learn proper preparations and finishes for exercises, as well as be introduced to a class format that they will use for the remainder of their training. Ballet 1 provides the teacher with teaching suggestions, step-by-step classroom choreography, several enchainements and short dances for class use, as well as a thorough look into the growth patterns of children between the ages of 8 and 12. Enjoy the classroom posters, detailed full-color illustrations of the arm and feet positions, as well as illustrated depictions of new positions and movements unique to the Ballet 1 level of technique. With the Suite, teachers can benefit from having the book, a year of lesson plans already made out, and the music album all in one easy download!
