What's Included

A natrual progression for boys and girls who complete Pre Ballet II. Student dancers are introduced to the basic principles of alignment and proper body placement, the language of ballet (French), rhythmic steps and creative movement through improvisation, ballet positions and coordination exercises. This class is an extension of Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet and children will continue to develop "line" and form, but in a more measureable way. Be patient! This level can host children for two years until their bodies are developed enough for more advanced barre work and turned out positions. Students in Ballet 1 who are interested will be cast as "Mice" in Nut ReMix.
