Our Pre Ballet is a class a little more advanced than our Buttercup Ballet and is more suited for children with a higher attention span and/or who have done other activities before . It is a 45 mineute class instead of a half our like our Buttercup Ballet. In class, your child will learn ballet using the Vaganova technique. The children will start the class with a light, warm-up stretch, that leads into their barre where they will learn their feet positions, Pliés, Tendus and couple more different moves and terminology. From the barre they will go to the center for some balance and jumping exercises. They will also start to train in turning and spotting exercises. At the end of class they end with a warm down stretch and go over the basic positions of their arms and their splits. Not only will your child learn the basics in ballet but also your child will learn patience, how to respect others and make friends. We do have a dress code for this class (see the tab listed “Dress Code”), and we ask that it is respected and followed. If you have any questions please contact us by phone, e-mail or Facebook. The first class is no obligation and your child can wear something comfortable when trying the class. We have the uniforms for sale at the studio. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch, but we ask that you stay in the designated seating area and please try not to reprimand your child during class unless they are disrupting the class. If it is your first time coming to class, please come 15 minutes early, to sign paperwork and get your child settled into the class. You may opt to fill out the paperwork in advance instead by downloading and signing the forms on the tab listed as “Registration Forms”
