Everyone in the studio coming down with something?  Here's a delicious way to get your daily dose of vitamin C, over 95% of your potassium, over a quarter of your daily fiber and a lot more healthy things.  I made mine in a cast iron skillet, but it works just as well in a glass baking dish.  The nutritional information is based on the specifics I note in the…See More

Fixing the Fouetté

These are the notes from an class I taught on the subject at the Dance Teacher Summit in 2011.  For clarification, these skills are meant to be cumulative, over years of training and not progressions to be drilled one class after the other in short term training.  If you have been working on fouetté turns with dancers and having a problem with execution, a suggestion is…See More

Some interesting information about the female pelvis.

Profile Information

I am a
Dance Writer, Dance Industry / Retail Resource
About Me
abc for dance creates manuals, syllabi, curricula, coloring sheets and other resources for dance and movement educators.

In 1989, owner Anneliese Burns Wilson created the training materials for the Pan American Teachers of Dance Performing Arts Division. Over the next 10 years she refined the training materials into a leveled curriculum that was used in several studios.

In 1999, her company, The Step Shoppe Unlimited, was given a grant to create materials and workshops to prepare NJ academic school teachers to fulfill the Core Curriculum Standards in Dance in their classrooms. In 2000 this project became abc for dance.

Materials created by abc for dance are now being used in more than 1000 studios and schools worldwide. New products are introduced throughout the year and current products are updated to reflect new advances in education, movement science and dance medicine.

In 2011, abc for dance created a series of lesson plans for National Dance Week. The lesson plans will be available as free downloads from the NDW site. The hope is that academic school teachers will share the art and education of dance with their students, many who may not have had any previous introduction to dance.
I hope to
create resources that allow students to receive a quality dance education. Dancers who engage their mind are more empowered as artists. Every student should receive an education that allows them to choose their career path.
