Ballet & Dance Classes
Ballet classes will return in the Fall. Check back later this summer for our Fall schedule.
Introduces classical ballet steps and French terminology while incorporating creative movement in an encouraging and joyful environment. Students are given individual attention and guidance, and class often incorporates Free Dance to give children the opportunity for self-expression. We will also work with the ballet barre, explore story ballets, and learn a piece of choreography about the ballet.
Students should wear a leotard with or without skirt, or their favorite tutu. Pink footed tights with pink, real leather-soled ballet slippers preferred; if no slippers, please be barefoot.
A great class for boys, girls, and children who require a more high-energy approach to movement classes. Students will learn ballet fundamentals and French terminology – the same fundamentals taught in Pre-Ballet, but Creative Ballet is taught in a high-energy environment that is more free, creative, and less structured. Students will create their own movements and act out story dances. Core strength, balance, coordination, acting, and rhythm are just part of everyday class.
Please wear clothing suited for movement. Feet need to be bare or leather-soled ballet slippers. The Leotard, a movement apparel store located on MLK, has everything you need as well. www.theleotard.com
Ballet 1 & 2
Classes build on the fundamentals learned in Pre-Ballet. This class requires more focus and body awareness, and continues to nurture the individual dancer in each child. In addition to the Pre-Ballet description, Ballet 1 focuses on correct ballet position, lines and posture, and memorizing combinations and coreography.
