Journal of Precision Teaching and Celeration, v24 p21-27 2008
This article reports the effectiveness of a brief intervention aimed at achieving fluency in basic ballet moves in a 9-year-old Norwegian girl by use of frequency-building and Precision Teaching procedures. One nonfluent ballet move was pinpointed, and instructional and training procedures designed to increase the frequency of accurate responding were employed. During 9 days of training, the frequency of correct responses increased from 80 per min to 188 correct/per min with no learning possibilities. Follow-up probes after 32 weeks showed that frequency remained at the initial level. A Standard Celeration Chart, including follow-up data, is presented. Results and the use of behavioral methods in fine arts are discussed.
