Okay, I'm at a loss people. I'm teaching two ballet classes and two jazz classes a week and I'm running out of ideas for good exercises and cominations for both the barre and across the floor. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

All ages. All beginners but they have previous training in other forms of dance so I don't wanna bore them.

haha...well it would take a long time to type out exercises for such a diverse group of students.

I can recommend some good books :)
