Our preschool ballet classes are centered on learning, perfecting and executing classical ballet technique at the barre, across the floor, and during floor work. Dancers will also work on their posture, poise, grace, stability and flexibility. This class works on progressions that begin with basic footwork and excels to leaps and pirouettes.
We require our dancers to abide by our dress code. Dress codes are important for many reasons. By having our dancers dress the part, the children will feel more like dancers! Dress codes also instill teamwork and help to maintain focus and energy. Students are permitted to wear tutus, for their safety we will ask them to be removed prior to their time in the gym.
The dress code for movin’ & groovin’ is as follows:
Students may wear any comfortable play-appropriate clothing. Please no denim, zippers, dress ups or dresses. Dance attire is also acceptable. Students will need ballet shoes.
