The Pre-Ballet Class is a child's first introduction to how fun dance can be.  Ballet enhances a child’s posture, grace, poise, coordination, balance, flexibility, and musicality.  

Pre-Ballet classes are open to all children ages 3 – 5 and 6-7.  A perfect way to begin to foster the love of dance in your little one.


Considered the true foundation for most dance disciplines, ballet is essential to a dancer’s overall progress.  Class include barre work to both slow and fast exercises, followed by center and across the floor work.  Emphasis will be placed on the discipline of classical ballet technique, correct body placement, posture, arm and head movements, musicality, and mastering the steps.  Ballet builds strength, flexibility and balance that can be applied in other dance classes.  Class time will periodically be devoted to the written as well as spoken French ballet terminology.
