Beginner Child 5-8 years old Ballet (Saturday 11am)
In this class our youngest dancers learn basics of Ballet, positions and movement.
This ballet dance class is the student's first introduction to formal ballet class structure. Ballet benefits children a lot at that age. For this slightly older age group, stretching and strengthening exercises are given, barre work is introduced with an emphasis on vocabulary and French ballet terminology.
Musicality continues to be emphasized along with balance and coordination through the strengthening of the body core. Center floor work is introduced with continued focus on the positions of the arms, legs and feet using classical ballet vocabulary
Parents are welcome to stay at the studio during class. We have spacious lobby area with tables, chairs and vending machines. For the class we keep the door open so that you can see your child at all times.
