Watch our tots take the stage at our 2013
'for All Seasons' Recital
Ballet for Youngsters Age 1-5
Our early childhood classes are designed to create an appreciation for dance, classical music, movement, rhythm and structure. Through music, video, costume and props, children learn the foundation of ballet movements, placement & terminology and learn about all of the well-known classical ballet stories.
Parents are able to view classes throughout the school year and summer program.
