Summer Ballet Classes with Ms. Heidi

Ms Heidi Ketchel is originally from Mexico City, Mexico. She taught Ballet in Veracruz, Mexico for 10 years before moving to Pennsylvania. She has been teaching Ballet for the past 12 years here in the Pittsburgh area.

Heidi earned certificates of level from the Royal Academy of Dance program (RAD) as a dancer, but her main training was with the late Ballet Master, Mansur Kamaletdinov .She attended Mr. Kamaletdinov’s Master classes and Vaganova Teacher Seminars in Character, Pointe and Classic technique for 6 consecutive years and became one of his demonstrators traveling with him to teach Character seminars around the country.

Since the year 2011 she has been attending the yearly Teacher Workshop with the great Ballet Master Finis Jhung. This has been instrumental in keeping up her teaching technique up to date. She has been using since Mr Jhung’s technique to help her students find their own body strengths and to teach them how to adapt to their own body capabilities in order to make them able to become stronger and more efficient dancers.

In addition to teaching ballet, she is currently training in Flamenco dance and functioning as teacher assistant for Salsa performance teams.

Heidi believes that we never stop learning and that Ballet dancing needs to be a combination of different skills learned from other styles of dance, the understanding of biomechanics and cross training (yoga, Pilates, TRX); and that those skills can be imported and utilized in Ballet dancing and vice versa.

She loves seeing her students overcome their challenges through understanding of the human body but mainly through the awareness of their own.

Class objectives :

· Correct use of the muscles in plie, retire and relevé

· Use of the floor and foot for correct execution in jumps and turns

· Body weight transfer awareness while dancing at the center

· Stability and balance by finding axis during poses and turns

· Proprioception (perception of the self)

· Musicality and time signature understanding
