Pre-Dance Ages 2-4

An introduction to ballet using creative, imaginative role-playing and fun props. This class may involve pretending to be animals, playing instruments to learn rhythm, learning to balance, skipping and running and techniques using costumes and ribbons or picking up “diamonds” (shhh…they’re actually just feathers) from the ground to develop their hand-eye coordination. This class is suitable for both boys and girls who are having so much fun that they don’t even realize that they are learning the fundamentals of ballet technique along the way. This class can be combined with our Tot Hip-Hop and Tumble Tot class.

In this class, our dancers build on their ballet technique using creative role-play, costumes, props and will thrive from positive reinforcement. There are opportunities for students in this class to participate in ballet exams, which will encourage them to progress through the program/syllabus and work hard to move up into the next graded level.
