Creative Movement

Four Week Session July 5th – 31st

(3 and 4 yr olds)

This 45-minute class meets once a week and captures the joy of dancing in the students. Using playful, creative stories and themes we begin basic ballet technique, conditioning and strengthening exercises, and free form and structured group movement activities. Ballet vocabulary and class etiquette are introduced in preparation for pre-ballet.

One class per week

Pre-Ballet

Four Week Session July 5th – 31st

Pre-Ballet 1 (5 yrs old, or first-year student)
Pre-Ballet 2 (6 and 7 yrs old, or second-year student)

Pre-Ballet classes are one hour long. The class more closely follows the structure of a ballet technique class, but still allows for use of the students’ imaginations. The class begins with conditioning exercises worked around a creative theme to stretch and strengthen their muscles. Students will become familiar with the use of the ballet barre as well as ballet terminology, body placement, class etiquette, and musicality.
