More often than not, veteran dancers forget how invaluable private ballet coaching can be as a resource to help guide them through the initial phases of their holistic development and achieve their goals.
In addition to regular training through weekly group classes, private instruction can help a dancer grow and improve through the combination of a more streamlined method of teaching and the crucial one-on-one attention you will need to correct those pesky errors that have been cultivated over the years of making them.
Here are some ways private ballet coaching can help to make you a better dancer.
1. They are tailored specifically for you
Private lessons are beneficial because the focus would be concentrated solely on you. Once your teacher has identified what your goals are, exercises and technical feedback that will be most appropriate for your needs will be covered, be it if you’re preparing for examinations, competitions, performances, or just a beginner trying to embark upon a newfound passion.
Everyone has different goals, body types, and ways in which they learn. Your teacher will not just critique your technique and point out everything you’re doing wrong, but will tackle the problem at its source, showing you how to correct it. Instead of teaching everyone in the exact same manner, they will adjust their teaching techniques to suit your learning needs.
2. You’ll improve quicker
Because private lessons are taught on a one-on-one basis, you will realize that you are improving faster because your teacher has a lot more time to tackle your problem areas and suggest specific tips on how you can advance in your technique and skill level.
The amount of detail your teacher can delve into during private lessons is much greater than that of a group class. That’s because in a group class, the teacher’s time is split between the numbers of students enrolled. To make the most of your time during private lessons, you may want to point out certain areas of weakness you’d like to work on.
3. Its benefits extend to everyone
From complete beginners who may not feel comfortable or are perhaps awkward in group classes, to accelerated students who may need personalized attention and more challenging lessons which progress at a faster pace, the benefits of private ballet coaching extend to almost everyone.
