Ballet Basics for 4-5 Year Olds provides a foundation in ballet principles for our 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 plié, battement tendu, battement degagé, rond de jambe à terre, and the grand battement. In the center, students will explore movement through the pas de bourrée, balancé de côté, triplets, sautés in first and second positions, soubresauts, and finally the grand jeté. Exercises will focus on rhythm, balancing on two feet, bodily alignment, and musicality.
Unlimited, non-competitive scholarships available for children under 18.
