We aren’t so disconnected!!!!
A week ago, I sent a note to my graduated families offering them online ballet classes for their children who are now 6-10. Kira was a student of mine from a year ago and her mom told Momo’s mom and Kira & Momo enrolled together. The photo above is what happened when they saw each other in our first Zoom class!
I realized when we’re at home, we’re missing our friends, but we aren’t so disconnected. Taking a ballet class online with your friend lets you see them, gives you a shared experience and then gives you something to bond over after. It’s not the same as being together but boy is it a healing option!
It’s been great fun adjusting my classes for older children: The older children get floor barre and focus on body awareness for muscle groups so we can learn more complicated steps with safe technique. We’re also learning different ballet stories online than we did in person.

If you’d like to enroll your child (and a friend:) in my classes for children 6-10, we have a Tuesday class from 3:30-4pm. Cost is $25 and includes fun/optional class resources for homeschool. Enrollment in the class can be done here.
