Kayaking For Beginners

Kayaking For Beginners

Kayaking is a great way to spend time out in nature with good friends and great times. If you are just starting out, there are some things that you should learn before heading out into the water.

As a beginner, you will benefit greatly from taking a class. Being properly trained to kayak can mean the difference between having a safe and enjoyable experience, and finding yourself up a creek without a paddle (bad jokes aside). Being trained by a knowledgeable instructor is the best way to start out. It is also a great idea to kayak with a decent size group of people. When you go out with a group, it is inevitable that some kayakers will be more experienced than others. You can learn from them, drawing on their expertise and experience.

Ballet Class Music While You Drive – Are You Joking?

Ballet Class Music While You Drive – Are You Joking?

I’ve been a fan of all types of classical music since…I was born, I suppose. Having consistently listened to the wide range of styles within that genre for over fifty years, I really wasn’t expecting at this stage of my life to encounter an undiscovered (for me, at least) pocket of classical gems. Well, the news is, I did just that recently when I came across ballet class music for the first time. I even listen to it in my car. I’m certain most people have no idea what ballet class music is, unless they’ve taken a ballet class at some point in their journey through life. Fortunately it can be explained quickly and easily.

When teaching ballet, the more upscale ballet studios employ a pianist to improvise music for the ballet classes. Smaller studios use CDs which are recorded and sold by these same pianists. This is referred to throughout the dance world, appropriately enough, as ballet class music. There are two distinct types of this musical style and I’m enamored with only one of them and find the other pedantic at best and profoundly irritating at worst. We all have our musical tastes, after all.

How To Choose The Right Ballet Class For Your Child

How To Choose The Right Ballet Class For Your Child

If you find that your child loves to dance to music or has asked you before about taking dance lessons, you may want to consider enrolling your child in a reputable dance school. But many parents may not know what to look for when choosing the perfect school. Choosing the right class can be the difference between a child who likes going to dance class and a child who despises it. Many children can truly benefit from having some dance discipline in their life. Here are a few pointers to look for when choosing the right ballet or dance class for your child.

Keep a few dance classes and instructors in mind. Ask other parents in your child’s school if they know of a good dance school that is near to your house. Traveling long distances for a good dance school is unnecessary if there is already a good school near your home. Gas costs for traveling to the dance school should be taken into consideration. Most dance classes meet once a week, while others may meet several times a week. Having a dance school near to your home cuts back on traveling and gas costs. However, the distance between your home and the dance school shouldn’t be the only thing you keep in mind.
