EARLY CHILDHOOD DANCE PROGRAM: PRE-BALLET
The basic elements of movement and dance are taught in our Pre-Ballet classes for ages 3-5 as follows: Space and how the student relates to it, both as an individual and as a member of a group, the eight basic locomotor movements, musical rhythm, beat and time, opposites and directions, and elementary positions of ballet. Integrated with these physical concepts are the intellectual concepts of self-awareness, creative expression, and imagination. Students also learn the basic concepts of classroom behavior and manners, which remain the same throughout their dancing years: how to take turns, following another dancer or leading the way, waiting patiently, maintaining a positive attitude, and working together with others. Class content is based on appropriate developmental skills for their specific age. Both boys and girls can benefit from this learning experience in a fun and positive environment. Class size is limited to allow for individual attention.
