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.

FAQs about Children 3-5 pre-Ballet Dance Class
Is this Ballet dance class for beginners?
Definitely! This pre-Ballet dance class is designed for very young children that have no dance experience at all. This is why we call them ballet dance classes, because kids learn ballet. We want everyone to feel like they can come take class no matter what their experience or skill level and we've worked hard to make sure our classes meet the needs of those who are just starting.
Will there be a recital?
Of course! We organize Holiday Dance Showcase in the end of each year for all our dance students. It is normally in December qround Christmas time. We highly recommend students to participate. It is a wonderful feeling to see our student work hard towards a goal and perform what they've learned in front of an audience with the encourage of our teachers, staff, friends, and of course, family!
For Holiday Dance Showcase we normally organize a group performance so that everybody has a chance to aprticipate. Doing group dance performance also makes it easier for those children that never performed dance before.
