Ballet for Young Children
Creative Ballet (ages 3-5)
The Creative Ballet classes are for children ages 3-5. Classes meet one time per week for 45 minutes. Creative Ballet 1 is open to children who have turned 3 by September 1, 2013. Creative Ballet 2 is open to children who have turned 4 by September 1, 2013. Creative Ballet 3 is open to 5 year olds who prefer a creative dance class rather than the Pre-Ballet option for 5-year-olds.
Classes are narrative in nature as students are led through a series of movement stories and ballet-based activities that appeal to both girls and boys alike. The movement in each story enhances the development of fine and gross motor skills as they balance, skip, leap, coordinate, isolate and move to the music. Social skills are also developed through collaborative and cooperative games. More...
Pre-Ballet (ages 5-7)
Pre-Ballet classes are for children ages 5-7. The curriculum for this division was developed by Toni Bravo. This program is a prelude to formal ballet instruction and introduces children to music and movement through a structured progression that stresses creativity and group interaction.
An excellent and fun introduction to classical ballet and fine arts, the Pre-Ballet syllabus is introduced at a time when fine and gross motor skills are becoming more refined. By introducing students to the basic shapes, positions, postures and traditions of classical ballet, the Pre-Ballet curriculum enhances both cognitive and physical development at this important time.
