Fairy Ballet (Age 2.5)

This wonderful class is designed for children who want to dance but are not quite old enough to join a ballet class. We uses props, stories and songs to teach balance, rhythm, movement, coordination, and basic ballet steps. Parents are invited to watch the last ten minutes of class as so we can show what we have learnt. 

 

Pre School (Age 3.5)

This class is for children who are ready to separate from their parent and dance independently. 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. Class meets one or more times a week for 45 minutes.
