Storybook Ballet (Ages 3-5)

Storybook Ballet is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the world of dance. Through this class the children will travel to faraway lands, dance with magical characters and return home safely!

Students are greeted with a warm up and welcome dance followed by a basic stretch. They are then guided through the basic positions of the feet and arms as well as a series of basic steps and proper terminology. Traveling across the floor is the next journey. Leaping and hopping over bridges, through gardens and around the rainbows! The class closes with a costume dress up, reading time and a special story dance each week. This class is sure to capture the interest and imagination of your child!
