Class Descriptions

Ballet Play (ages 3-4 years)

Ballet Play combines dancing, story-telling, and imagining. Children gain practice working together, following directions, and exploring shapes and actions in a creative and playful manner. They develop strength, flexibility, rhythm, and coordination. Students experience the fun of moving freely to music, which enhances the development of self-expression and musicality.

Ballet Creative (ages 5-6 yrs.)

Students learn basic ballet concepts and vocabulary through age-appropriate exercises that emphasize body awareness. Explorations with imagery, music, and movement nurture self-expression, discovery, and making choices. Class members learn a choreographed dance piece to perform at the end of each session.

Ballet Basics (ages 7-12 yrs.)

Students develop a strong understanding of basic ballet concepts and vocabulary through age-appropriate exercises that emphasize body awareness. The main focus of the class is to build skills. Students must study and master all components of Ballet Basics before they can register for Ballet I. Class members learn a choreographed dance piece to perform at the end of each session.
