Creative Movement and Pre Ballet
3 to 4 years of age

Creative Movement/Pre Ballet (Ages 3-4) is a fun way for kids to develop their movement skills, spark their imagination, focus their energy and stimulate their creativity. Creative Dance uses a concept-based approach, through which students learn the fundamentals and principles of dance. Benefits of creative dance include opportunities for self-expression through movement, as well as aesthetic and social development. This combination of movement, music, improvisation, and basic dance steps is an excellent introduction for the future study of dance techniques.

Children's Ballet
(5-8 years)

Children's Ballet gives kids a chance to both experience the imaginative, concept-based approach of creative movement and get an introduction to basic ballet technique. In this class children practice creativity, focus, musicality, coordination, listening and vocabulary. Props and varied music are used while introducing students to the joy of movement and ballet. This class develops confident, creative movers and is a good foundation for dance and other movement activities.

Ballet (from 9 years)

These classes provides a fun but focused foundation in ballet for students starting serious dance training. An opportunity for each student to learn and practice executing movement correctly is provided; students develop strength, musicality, concentration and alignment. This class is suitable for students who want to try ballet because they are interested in becoming dancers and for students who simply want to dance and improve their body awareness and placement. Classes from beginner to pre-professional levels are taught, using the Cecchetti and Vaganova methods of ballet with emphasis on creativity. Students at this level are encouraged to study twice weekly, although a single class per week schedule is offered. For serious students, point classes are available.
