Young dancers are taught basic warm-up and stretch exercises to instill the idea of getting the body ready to dance; through fun routines, very simple ballet movements are taught in a playful environment; children learn to follow instructions, work in a group environment without a parent, and enjoy simple but effective early ballet practice. This is a class where creativity, musicality, and love of movement are nurtured. Parents do not take part in this class, but are welcome to relax with light refreshments in our sitting area while children learn the basics of ballet. Dress code: Comfy starter ballet. Leotard and footless tights. Instructor & Fees: The class is instructed by Susana Collins. The fee is $220 + $10 non-refundable registration fee per child for an 8 week session (8 classes)
