The goal of my research was not only to teach students proper ballet technique, but to also refine my own teaching skills. My aim was to discover what techniques work best in presenting information to my students, and how to create a comfortable and fun learning environment that was also structured and disciplined. Exploring the appropriate student-teacher relationship, the process of forming and planning a class, as well as the delivery of steps and technique during class, were of the utmost importance. As such, the documentation of my own progress, as well as that of my students, will provide the field of dance instruction with another, valuable perspective on effective methods of teaching movement.
