Ballet En Demand

Looking for more active ways to keep the kids busy while they’re stuck at home? Two NJ dance instructors want to help. Thiago Silva and Alexander Dutko, directors of Ballet Central New Jersey (BalletCNJ) in Hamilton Twp., started a free online library of dance classes called Ballet En Demand.

The resource is provided through Silva and Dutko’s nonprofit New Jersey Foundation of Artistry & Ballet (NJFAB), which provides artists and communities with programs, education and performances that promote classical ballet and dance. The library went live on March 15.

Dance teachers from all over the country can submit video classes to be accepted and posted for online viewing. There are classes for ages preschool and up, and they include lessons in ballet, pointe and dance conditioning. Dance students missing out on their usual lessons thanks to closings and parents with young kids can get a lot out of these daily video updates.

The site aims to keep kids inspired, moving and upbeat during self-isolation. Stream classes on the website here, and follow @BalletEnDemand on Instagram for more updates.
