Pre Ballet/Acro Classes

PreBallet/Acro:  Our most popular class among 3, 4, and 5 year olds!  This class is a great beginning to the world of dance!  It teaches students to follow directions from an adult (other then a parent), listening skills, coordination, cooperation, ballet and acrobatics skills.  It usually begins with an obstacle course or some engaging activity to get the children moving from the start.  They continue with warm up stretching and dancing. The class then works on ballet technique.  They do a modified ballet barre, center work and then move on to across the floor skills.  After spending 15-20 on strictly ballet, the children will work on steps within the creative movement section of the class.  They may work on chasse (a gallop step) while pretending to be princesses riding a horse. This section of class usually incorporates various manipulatives such as scarves, ribbons or pom pons.  The last portion of the 55 minute class is devoted to acrobatic/tumbling skills.  This class is designed to keep the young dancer engaged, moving and learning!
