Intro | Teaching Retiré | Teaching Tendus | Teaching Musicality

In the more than 20 years that I have been involved with competition, both as an adjudicator and now competition director of On Stage America, the one thing that has continually come to my attention is the need for better ballet training. This is especially true of young children and beginners who have started their dance training at a later age.

The one common consistency is the need for a better understanding of the use of demi plie and the importance of learning to stretch the feet to the fullest. And as we all know, this not only pertains to ballet but to so many other types of dance as well.

At competition, I’ve often sat there and thought to myself, “I can fix that.” Well, the time has come for me to do just that. Enter Technique by Terry, a teacher training course that addresses these issues and many, many more. Not only does it present a “painless” way to offer basic ballet training, but includes a segment on rhythm, musicality and improvisation.

All forms of dance, especially tap, can benefit from the rhythm section and the musicality and improvisational section is one the children can’t wait to do. It is a lot of fun!

MY LONG RANGE PLAN IS TO MAKE THIS COURSE AVAILABLE OVER THE YEARS TO EVERY DANCE STUDIO WHICH OFFERS CHILDREN'SWORK. ONLY THEN WILL I FEEL THAT I TRULY HAVE ATTAINED MY GOAL WHICH IS THE ON STAGE AMERICA MOTTO, "INSPIRING OUR YOUTH TO HIGHER GOALS." SOUND TOO AMBITIOUS? WITH YOUR HELP IT WON'T BE.

My Gift To You, Our Supporters

This season I will be presenting my new pre-ballet syllabus, Technique by Terry, at selected cities throughout our competition circuit. Teachers, this is my gift to you, my way of thanking you for your support this season. There is a very nominal introductory charge for this 3 hour Master Class complete with manual and CD of original music composed especially for this syllabus.

Its initial presentation was at our Nationals in July and it was very well received. Now I am offering it to all of you, our supporters. What I will need are host studios in the cities where we hold our competitions. Are you interested?

Please contact me for details!
