Dance Teacher Press has creative books, posters, flashcards, coloring sheets, and other teaching tools for dancers.
Dance Teacher Press began with The Ballet Combination Book.
The Ballet Combination Book is a compilation of notes from years of teaching. Says founder, Janet Jerger, “I was constantly referring to my notes and thought many other teachers might enjoy them too.” Testing the market on ebay, teachers told Jerger it was a very helpful tool that they enjoyed for class planning.
“That was my first product,” says Jerger, “and since then I have created many new items for dancers and teachers. It has been a wonderful adventure to create beautiful items that make teaching dance easier and more enjoyable.”
Dance Teacher Press would like to give away a Ballet Bundle to THREE Dance Advantage readers.
The bundle includes:
Ballet Step by Step, an illustrated ballet dictionary for students.
The 64-page book includes definitions, translations and pronunciations for more than 60 of the most basic ballet terms. The book is written in the order a class is conducted, beginning with etiquette and positions. Ballet Step by Step is Perfect bound, 8 x 8, 64 pages, and retails for $13.95.
The Ballet Combination Book contains over 250 combinations for the ballet class.
This book is designed to help you with a multitude of choices and ideas, ideal for those times when you find yourself teaching the same exercises week after week. It is also an indispensable tool for apprentice teachers. You’ll find basic technique ideas for young dancers, as well as more difficult combinations for the intermediate dancer. After you are familiar with the easy to read combinations, refer to it on the spot – even while teaching! The Ballet Combination Book is Perfect bound. 8 X 11, 58 pages, and retails for $21.95
