Dance on! 9:45 — Absolutely Beginning Dancers — Let’s get a head start and do our regular barre work before the more experienced dancers join.

NEW! Absolutely Beginning Dancers! This is especially for you. A video of the first 15 minutes of our Zoom classes, recorded on Sunday, April 19th. We did it!
Topic: Ballet with Joan Lazarus Date: Apr 19, 2020 07:56 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
Modern Dancers And one more thing to add for the modern dancers among you . . . Here is the link to the advanced modern dance floorwork, featuring Jane Schnorrenberg, Anna Dal Pino, and yours truly. Enjoy!
Turns out that virtual dancing is still moving moving moving! And I was very moved to see your faces yesterday. Miss you soooooo much.
So, let’s try again. The link below should work for all our sessions from now on, so keep it handy.
Money: Some of you have sent donations through Venmo (@JoanLazarus-Dobkowski), and I am going to keep this monetary part of our dance as simple as possible. If you cannot afford to contribute at this time, please keep on dancing with me. Dance first; Money second. If you don’t have access to Venmo, then just keep track of classes you take and donate when we are finally back together again at the studio. I completely understand, and this online-virtual-whatever kind of class is our next best thing to being together. I am not keeping track.
Dance on! — joan
If we learn the 8 body positions and pas de bourrée, we will know 40% of ballet! So, the Absolutely Beginning dancers, get ready to focus on those two areas in the next few classes. Here’s a link to the Beginning Ballet Handbook that is posted on my website:
And . . . after spending hours searching online for good guidance, I think it can be summed up as, “Let’s hunker down more enthusiastically if we want to beat this thing.”
I want to be part of the effort focused on solution rather than risk, so let’s create more ease in the space.
ABIDE by the "shelter-in-place" directive until at least MAY 1st. NO CLASSES for a while, but that doesn't mean you can't dance. You are always in the dance. Keep those atoms moving with your "small dance."
I plan to begin offering online classes, and will let you know by email when that begins.
See you on the other side — joan
