Creative Movement Classes and Intro to Ballet (ages 3 to 6) 

Creative Movement introduces young girls and boys to the study of dance in a fun and supportive environment. The class is an age-appropriate introduction to ballet using music and rhythm to develop coordination, athleticism, focus, and confidence. All classes have live piano accompaniment and incorporate songs, stories, and movement activities which will support the child's natural creativity and joy in movement. 

Introduction to Ballet is designed to transition young girls and boys from Creative Movement to the more formal structure of a ballet class including barre and center work. Ballet fundamentals, beginning terminology, and classroom etiquette are introduced while nurturing the child's self-confidence, sense of artistry, and exploration of movement. All classes have live piano accompaniment.

Ballet Classes

In ballet technique classes, focus is placed on alignment, posture, coordination, and musicality through the traditional structure of barre and center work. Progress through class levels is nurtured by experienced ballet department faculty as technical skills, physical control, and ballet vocabulary are developed appropriate with student's age and physical development. Students will be provided with written evaluations at the end of the Spring term.
