What's Included

Pre-Ballet is the natural progression from Creative Movement. The Brain Dance is still included in the curriculum and built upon. Students will stand at the barre in very basic positions, with little "turn out", but for the first time and will follow the structure of ballet class. Although free movement (the opportunity to improvise) and "mapping the floor" are still important class components, remaining class time will be devoted to beginning barre work facing the barre only) and beginning center work including skipping, chasse, gallop and ballet walks in addition to learning basic French terminology of dance. Pre Ballet I is for students who have never had Pre Ballet; Pre Ballet 2 is for second year students who are still preparing for Ballet I. THIS CLASS IS A NATURAL PROGRESSION FROM CREATIVE MOVEMENT for children who excel but who are not developmentally ready for Ballet I.
