We have met an amazing group of teachers and dancers in Tanzania on Instagram. They have been working hard to build a dance studio by hand and offer free lessons to anyone who wants to learn. Their passion and joy is inspirational! We are putting together a series of beginner lessons, one by each of our ambassadors.
A big thank you to our ambassador, Claire Knodel (@claireknodel12) for this first video for beginning ballerinas! The 5 basic foot positions are the foundation for everything else we learn.
We look forward to adding a video of Ballet East Africa practicing their foot positions here!
