About our Young Dancer Division Classes
Grown up and Me (ages 18 – 36 months)
Grown up and Me classes offer a nurturing and encouraging environment for your child's first introduction to the art of dance. Children experience the imaginative world of dance through rhythms, music, and creativity together with their grown-up.
Introduction to Ballet 1 & 2 (ages 3 & 4)
Children in our intro classes experience the imaginative world of dance, independent from their parents, building confidence in movement through musicality and creativity. Classes include stretching, activities to develop coordination and musicality, and creative expression.
Pre-Ballet 1 & 2 (ages 5 & 6)
Pre-Ballet classes offer an engaging environment for your child to discover the joy of dance and confidence through rhythmic and spatial patterns, music, and creativity. Our pre-ballet program includes stretching, introductions to basic technical steps, development of coordination and musicality, across the floor work, and creative expression in movement.
Elementary 1 & 2 (ages 7 & 8)
At the elementary levels, students develop initiative and passion for the art of dance through classical training as they connect their creative foundation of movement to a more structured elementary program. Elementary classes begin to focus more on technique and correct body placement, incorporating more technical work at the barre, and introducing the classical structure of a ballet class in an engaging and encouraging environment.
Junior levels 1 – 3
Our young junior levels are designed to facilitate a love for dance while incorporating discipline, technique, and inspiration. The focus at this level is to establish a strong and healthy foundation for future ballet technique and training. Correct body placement, enhanced technical skills and vocabulary progression are all further developed in these levels. In addition to ballet technique classes, the junior curriculum includes specialty classes, such as contemporary, jazz, musical theater, and introduction to our Pilates strengthening program.
