The basic foundation for most forms of dance
PRE-SCHOOL BALLET CLASSES
These 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.
PETITTE PRIMETTES (2 to 3 yrs)
This level allows children and their grown-up helper to share the fundamentals of dance, movement and song
PRIMETTES (3 to 4 yrs)
Early foundation of ballet technique, combined with fun, imaginative activities
FIRST STEPS BALLET (4 to 5 yrs)
New steps are introduced to challenge and extend the knowledge and capabilities of the young dancers.
Some ballet classes include a ‘Popettes’ session – movement and dance to fun, upbeat music.
