Students learn the stories of fairy tale ballets such as; Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Coppelia, Peter and the Wolf. They portray different characters from the ballet they are learning using simple props.

Pre-Ballet A & B (6-8 & 7-9 yrs)

Pre-Ballet is an introduction to a formal ballet class. While still nurturing their imagination and creativity, ballet technique is first introduced at the barre. Students will develop ballet vocabulary and musical rhythm through barre and center work. Ballet barre with warm up exercises will be taught. Terminology for simple ballet steps, musicality, grace and coordination are developed through positive reinforcement.  Class structure and discipline will be taught along with encouraging this young age to continue to develop their imagination and foster their creativity in a positive environment. The next in training is our Pre-Professional Program.
