The Academy Pre–School Ballet Program serves as an introduction to ballet allowing us to develop the fundamentals of dance whilst fostering their love and creativity of movement.
The Academy’s Pre–School Ballet classes are designed for students aged between 3-7 years. Pre–School classes use familiar, fun movements to stretch and strengthen the body and to develop fundamental ballet skills. Since this is usually the child’s first experience in a ballet class, we use playful movements to teach rhythms, patterns, shapes, counting, and musical phrasing. The classes are focused on building memory and listening skills while creating a fun and energetic atmosphere for young dancers. The Pre-School curriculum is designed to build muscle strength, correct posture, and proper alignment in a safe and effective manner. Students will also learn age-appropriate repertoire, ballet stories, and ballet history through games, movement, and interactive activities designed to enhance the students’ overall understanding of the material.
