Wee and Pre-Dance
Sons and Daughters of the King
Does your little princess dance everywhere she goes? Does your little knight love to explore movement?
In these classes your child will enjoy hearing their favorite Bible stories in preparation for a time of worship, all while effortlessly discovering the basic fundamentals of ballet.
Introduced to the concept of expressing themselves through movement, students use props such as scarves, ribbons, feathers, etc. to increase their coordination and motor skills. Basic movements such as hopping, skipping, and jumping are explored, in addition to being introduced to simple fundamentals of classical ballet technique such as turn-out and the positions of the feet. Basic musicality and rhythm are introduced, as well as encouraging social skills, listening skills, concentration, and memory. In December and May, students taking Wee Ballet classes are given the opportunity to perform in their own shows.
