Ballet pedagogy; the art of teaching.


Ballet pedagogy; the art of teaching.

Foster, Rory.

U. Press of Florida


150 pages




Foster (emeritus dance, DePaul U.) begins by explaining how well- trained ballet dancers cannot have the faintest idea how to teach: if they themselves had good teachers, the pedagogy would have been invisible, never coming between the students and what they were learning. Then he explains aspects that are essential for teaching ballet, from perspectives of a historical synopsis of ballet pedagogy, the ballet class, anatomy for the dancer, music for dance, the teaching and learning process, teaching your class, dancer health and injuries, and establishing your own school.
