Curriculum: 
 
Musical theatre dance includes training in the foundational dance genres of Jazz, Tap and Ballet while learning to connect emotion to movement. Storytelling is the highest priority when learning musical theatre dance!
 
In this course we will begin with a high energy warm up that includes stretching techniques, finding our balance and flexibility and honing skills found in Jazz, Ballet and Modern.
 
Beginning on your feet and getting blood pumping will lead to floor exercises and strengthening so we’ll be ready to focus on center work.
This portion of class could be centered on footwork, turns, style and starting to put together movement for future use in choreography. We’ll then cross the floor, beginning to marry our jumps and turns together so we can move into the last portion of class: Learning choreography!
 
We’ll spend time learning the steps to big Broadway shows like “Hairspray!”, “The Lion King”, “Chicago” and more!
 
Get ready to move and express yourself through dance! 
 
Katharine’s teaching style is all student-driven. Every class starts with the basics, honing technique, then moving across-the-floor to build more advanced skills which will require endurance and strength. Every student will receive one-on-one corrections and advice to push to the level of their desire! We’ll wrap up with a combination that utilizes and expands on what we worked on in class that day.
Everyone can dance!
 
*No Tap shoes required*

Course curriculum

There are several reasons your student may need math support.  Your child may not be at the top of his/her game in math and you don’t have time to provide the extra support.  Or, your child has progress beyond the math their school is teaching and races through assignments without learning something new or being challenged. Maybe your child has a unique learning style that could be fostered by one-on-one learning.  A personalized learning program may be just what your child needs to excel in math.

 

I have taught math to students from early elementary to middle school and have developed an online curriculum aligned to both Common Core Standards and State Standards.  I will work with your child to discover which concepts need improvement, provide visual engagement that motivates your child to find solving math problems exciting.

 

I have more than 20 years of experience in the classroom from elementary to college and university.  I earned my BEd. in Canada at the University of Lethbridge and my MEd. from American Intercontinental University.  I also have additional certification in Intellectually & Academically Gifted Education.
