Children learn to take turns, use movement that crosses the midline and participate in a group setting utilizing creative games and music to support fun learning.
Our leveled ballet classes begin at Ballet 1 and graduate at Ballet 6. Our teachers create lesson plans that incorporate a structured barre, center work and combinations that travel across the floor - increasing the students' vocabulary, flexibility, strength and stamina with each level.
