This is a creative and enriching introduction to ballet for young dancers. Children learn body awareness, spatial awareness, rhythm and music appreciation. Basic concepts of movement, like jumping, walking, marching and turning, are reinforced each class. Props and costumes are used. This is an adult participation class, and a parent or caregiver must be present with each participating child.
Children gain strength, confidence and coordination as they learn fundamental ballet steps in a creative environment. Lessons explore movement through floor stretches, rhythm exercises and traveling steps. Creative games, props, imagery and storytelling make each class an engaging and fun experience for the young dancer. This is an independent participation class.
