Miss Kim’s Dance Activities from around the web

 Hello Dancers and Dance Parents, 


Brain Dance Warm up


Cardio Warm up 

Maricopa County Public Health partnered with the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury, and Univision Arizona, to produce a fun, easy-to-follow dance workout video for schools. 

Stretching Warm up

This stretch and strength routine is taken directly from the ADTA Junior Syllabus, Warm up #1. The introductory video is the Teachers Training Module for this technique warm-up. While it is designed for teachers, it is still suitable for students who would like a detailed explanation of each exercise. This technique warm-up takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Be sure to perform it three times per week while you are training at home right now. 

Visit their youtube channel to see videos of individual exercises from this series after you are familiar with the proper technique.

This is a beginner ballet class for ages 6-7 (maybe 8) years old. They start in the center with technical exercises that help with strength and flexibility. Then they move into ballet technique at the barre, and end with some traveling. Students review plies, tendues and a few more skills.

This is an at home practice ballet class for younger kids taking ballet. During this time of quarantine while so many kids are home, I'll be offering some of my videos for free, just to keep the kids busy and in the mood to dance!
