Creative Movement
(ages 3's preschool)

A 16-week, 45-minute dance adventure where young dancers begin a magical journey into the exciting world of dance. While classes focus on developing creativity, kinetics, and rhythmic skills, using a variety of age appropriate activities and props your child will feel like they are transported to exotic and faraway lands. We'll "travel" to ancient Peru, we'll visit inside tropical jungles, explore the deepest oceans, and of course visit lots and lots of castles as we pretend to be beautiful princesses!. Classes are taught by patient and nurturing professionals. We know how much this age group LOVES to play "pretend", so our classes are filled with many imaginative activities and lots of dress up all provided by the studio! Participation in the spring performance is guarranteed only when child participates in both terms. Children who enroll only in the spring term will be extended an invitation to perform on a case-by-case basis.

Beginner Ballet
(Kindergarten)

A full year program designed to initiate the young dancer into the complex and beautiful world of classical ballet. Classes are an hour in length and include an introduction to barre exercises, across the floor locomotion skills and beginning center work. Strength, proper body alignment, ballet vocabulary (terminology) and classroom etiquette are emphasized. As this is a transitional year for kindergartners, the program includes many of the fun & creative "let's imagine" activities from previous lessons.

Although this is a yearlong program, late registration may be accepted on a case-by-case basis, please call for information.
