Ballet is a highly technical form of dance that originated in France and Russia and spread to America in the 1800s. There are many stylized forms of ballet that convey a narrative through elegance and symmetry. While ballet is continuing to change and grow today, getting your child into the dancing world doesn’t have to be a challenge. If your child is showing interest in dance, specifically ballet, Omaha School of Music and Dance has all the tools to keep your child interested and learning the fundamentals of ballet while keeping them primed and ready for the dancing world. The best way to do this is through private ballet lessons to nurture their natural talent and mold them into the perfect ballerina
Taking a private ballet dance class is the easiest way for you child to have a lesson that is personally tailored to them and their skill set. Having a one-on-one experience will help your teacher identify your goals while teaching you the proper material to fulfill them masterfully. Everyone has a different learning style, a different body style, and different interests or goals – having a private instructor will make it easier to take those into account and apply them to the teaching and customization of the lessons. Where group classes can be beneficial for social situations, taking private ballet is a much better way for a child or teen to learn discipline and to learn how their body works for ballet. Having personal attention in a ballet lesson also helps you or your student from forming bad habits that could otherwise happen in a group class – personal attention can ultimately eliminate this chance and lead to quick and easy learning.
If your student has a private instructor, they will have more time to work with your student which in turn comes with faster progress! In an environment that’s one-on-one, mistakes can be easily identified and quickly altered and fixed, making progression skyrocket along with your talent. Technique and details can be worked on continuously and efficiently. Being in a group class is harder, as a teacher cannot always individually work with students, and sometimes that can make students feel discouraged or run-down. Working privately, however, with a personalized experience, can get your student out of a rut. Targeting your individual strengths and weaknesses is a fantastic way to stay more engaged in a class while helping you perfect your craft even more quickly. Private lessons are the best way to become a more proficient dancer, whether you decide to take your skill to competitions or as a career path.
A private ballet dance class is great for busy students because they are made to fit around your specific schedule. Group classes are made to be easily accessible and arranged at convenient times, but sometimes don’t always fit your specific needs as a busy ballerina. Scheduling is made easy for you when private lessons are only being made through two people – you and your instructor. Finding the right time is much easier this way and can benefit your learning experience. For example, if you are scheduled for a group class on a rather busy day of yours, something could come up and you could run late for your lesson or have to miss it entirely which can halt your progress. But scheduling privately and on a day that works well for you along with the attention of a private instructor can put you ahead of the rest in you ballet skill.
