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 vocabulary. 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, 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.
