Pre-primary level. Age 5-6
This program is designed for students age 5–6 and focuses on the development of coordination through movement, motor skills, listening skills, and the development of a child’s natural creativity. This is the best age to develop their body movement skills in a playful setting.
The program introduces children to classical dance and teaches them the first ballet steps. The tasks become gradually more challenging, and their execution is expected to be more precise. This is the first stage of understanding and experiencing Ballet.
The children are introduced to the terminology of classical dance, familiarized with the first steps of ballet, step combinations at the barre. These classes help to develop body agility, movement coordination, space awareness, and creativity. Our students practice their first dance arrangements at this level.
Age: at least age 5 by September 1st. The group is attended by children whose age difference is no more than 2 years, and we consider this to be very important.
