Live music and a ballet setting, where students face the mirror and the teacher, come together to prepare your child for more formal ballet training.

Pre-Ballet 2

Your child refines ballet steps and learns new ones, while working on balance through fun games to strengthen and support muscle development.

Age 7



In this fundamental level, proper turnout of legs, pointing of feet and alignment of the body are improved and understood. These elements prepare your child for the continued study of ballet in the Classical Ballet Program.
