Pre-Ballet

Pre-Ballet and Creative Movement Enrichment Classes

Pre-ballet offers a wonderful introduction to ballet with creative movement for 3-5 year olds, ready to dance without a caregiver or parent. This class nurtures coordination, balance, strength, flexibility, musicality, motor skills, confidence, and creativity; it introduces basic ballet movements and terms. Young dancers will skip, hop, jump, gallop, walk on demi-pointe, and be introduced to the basics of the world of ballet. Creative problem solving and working with props such as scarves, sponge balls, and parachutes will also be part of this developmental experience.

Suggested attire: children should wear comfortable, non-constricting clothing. Leotards are encouraged but not required. Boys may wear shorts or sweats and a t-shirt. No shoes are needed.

ADA Offers Two Pre-Ballet Options For Your Child

  • Pre-ballet class at the Camelot or A.V. Sorensen studio location progresses through the entire year (September – May), culminating in the spring recital that takes place in May. Click here for details about the full-year program.
  • Pre-ballet enrichment classes at various off-site studio locations span multi-week periods. If participating in a pre-ballet enrichment course, you can join at any time, and fees are prorated for late enrollment. These students do not participate in spring recital; however, there are parent demonstration days where students perform for parents. (See below for details.)
