Pre-Ballet 2

Introduce your young dancer to the world of ballet. Ballet engages children through the use of their imagination while learning proper ballet terms, correct body placement and gross motor skills and is beneficial for both boys and girls. Classroom etiquette is discovered and taught. These classes are separated into two age groups so children can thrive by learning age-appropriate skills. Ballet for this age group focuses on the same basic concepts of traditional barre work and more independent movement.
