Pre-Ballet, Pre-Ballet 1 and Intro to Level 1 are an introduction to formal ballet training. Classical ballet classes begin at age 3 with Pre-Ballet. Students will develop a foundation for ballet in a non-competitive learning environment, fostering a love for dance and music. Exercises promote correct posture, technique and flexibility, while expanding gross motor skills and developing balance and strength. Students are introduced to French vocabulary, movement expression, proper ballet etiquette and discipline. Students ages 4 & 5 will move to our Pre-Ballet 1 classes. Students ages 7 and up with no ballet experience will be placed in our Intro to Level 1 class to help them build the dance foundation they need for their ballet education. Students ages 7 and up with previous classical ballet instruction will be required to take a placement class to determine their level.
