CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

Fairy Ballet (Age 3 - 4)

This class is structured to stimulate coordination skills, listening skills, balance, music interpretation, creative movement and motor development in the youngest dancers, ages 3 - 4 years. This program is an excellent introduction to the world of dance and lots of fun.

Pre School (Age 4 - 5)

In this class exercises promote early childhood development with a focus on body awareness, gross motor skills and individual expres­sion through Creative Movement. The program includes basic ballet steps, balance, rhythm, flexibility, coordination, and creativity. Simple stretches and isolation exercises help to develop flexibility and body awareness. A favorite segment of class deals with traveling steps across the floor to encourage coordination and musicality. Listening skills and classroom etiquette are emphasized. This class meets once a week for 45 minutes.
