The Recording Session

For Grade 2, 3 and Grade 4 students still dancing at home, each student will be recording the choreography at home with the help of parents or guardians. The recording will be done during their class time to ensure that all students are confident in the choreography and have the teacher’s help.
Grade 5 and above students are welcome to record their choreography in the studio according to their online studio bookings.

What to do before the day of recording

Make sure the student has a correct uniform for the recording. Make sure you have a recording device – a phone camera is sufficient.

What to do on the day of recording 

Parents, be ready to be present for the entire duration of the class. It is helpful if you are able to watch the first half of the class as it will give you an opportunity to see the choreography and know how to best record it. The recording will take place in the second half of the class. 

Guidelines for recording:
  1. We will be recording the full choreography a few times. Please ensure that you have space on your device to record at least 2-3 times, so that the student can choose the best version.
  2. Shoot in  landscape (horizontal) format. Please see image below:
    recording guide
  3. Wherever possible, have the background as plain as you can. If there are items that can be easily removed such as chairs or plants, please do so.
  4. Please ensure that the full profile of the student is visible in the recording, from the feet to the head. We recommend doing a test recording before the performance day.

  5. Stand next to the student’s screen so you capture them in case they watch the teacher on Zoom.
  6. Do not worry about the music or any background noises during the recording – we will be adding a clean audio track onto the recordings in the process of editing.

The students have a research presentation paper on the classical ballet that their choreography is from. This will be due on the 9th January. This should include an outline of the original ballet, where the choreography appears, a basic history of the ballet and the choreographer and composer. Presentations are to be uploaded in the performance folder together with the performance video.
When students return to the studio, please bring the presentations printed and mounted so we can display them in our studios.
