The basic foundation for most forms of dance
Prima – Primettes and Pre-School Performing Arts
Albert Einstein said, “Logic will get you from A to B, imagination will take you anywhere’’ and Prima is the perfect place for children to unlock their imaginations and loose themselves in dance, music and drama.
PRIMETTES BALLET CLASSES – are fun for both boys and girls of all abilities aged 2-5yrs. Children benefit from the structure of a class and social skills, such as empathy, sharing, taking turns and cooperating with others, are important attributes for the development of happy and successful relationships and lifelong learning in all subjects.
Basic ballet and dance steps appropriate to the level of development, are introduced throughout the three level programme including jumps, skips, gallops, runs, walks and musicality. We also incorporate free expression and mime into the classes and the use of props such as scarves, ribbons and hoops add to the fun and learning process.
- Petite Primettes (2 to 3 yrs) – this level allows children and their grown-up helper to share the fundamentals of dance, movement and song
- Primettes 1 (3 to 4 yrs) – early foundation of ballet technique, combined with fun, imaginative activities
- Primettes 2 (4 to 5 yrs) – new steps are introduced to challenge and extend the knowledge and capabilities of the young dancers.
POPETTES – some ballet classes include a ‘Popettes’ session – movement and dance to fun, upbeat music.
CHATTERBOX DRAMA (3-5 yrs) Exploring themes and storylines through role play, movement, props and puppets.
