This class for kids ages 4 and 5 provides a foundation in ballet principles for your youngest aspiring ballerines and danseurs.
Teachers will approach this subject in a non-intimidating way, providing a safe environment for students to master the basics. With two hands on the barre, students will be introduced to fundamental ballet steps such as the pliÃ©, battement tendu, battement degagÃ©, rond de jambe Ã terre, and the grand battement. In the center, students will explore movement through the pas de bourrÃ©e, balancÃ© de cÃ´tÃ©, triplets, sautÃ©s in first and second positions, soubresauts, and finally the grand jetÃ©. Exercises will focus on rhythm, balancing on two feet, bodily alignment, and musicality. Keshet offers unlimited, noncompetitive scholarships to kids under 18.
