Ages 5 – 7 program focuses on coordination, development of motor skills, listening skills, and the development of a child’s natural creativity. This is the best age to develop their body skills in a playful setting.
The program is designed to introduce children to the classical dance and to teach them the first ballet steps. The tasks are more challenging and their execution is precise. This is the first stage of understanding ballet and feeling it.
The children learn the terminology of classical dance, familiarise themselves with the first steps of ballet training, step combinations at a barre, at the center of the dance floor, moving diagonally and in a circle. These classes help develop body agility, movement coordination, space awareness, creativity. Our students practice their first dance arrangements.
Age: at least 5 by September 1st
Time commitment: 3 classes per week.
The group is attended by children whose age difference is no more than 2 year. In our view, this is a very important.
