Boys and Girls Pre-Ballet, ages 5-6 (1 day a week for 1 hour)

As it sequences out of Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet retains the developmental aspect of self-generated movement and the use of imagination to learn basic dance concepts. This course also moves past the Creative Movement curriculum to initiate fundamental ballet principals. Basic positions and facings are introduced from a movement-based perspective.
