PRESCHOOL DANCE

Preschool Dance is the beginning of a lifetime of dance appreciation. It is the essence of using imagination and exploration as building blocks for a dance foundation. Students focus on gross motor skills – skipping, hopping and jumping – through musicality and movement. City Ballet pays special attention to the needs and abilities of preschoolers by using theme-based lesson plans full of meaningful play. To encourage performance techniques, the preschool classes hold a recital complete with costumes at the studio for parents and friends. The casual setting rewards dancers for their hard work all year without the stresses of a “big” stage and rehearsals.

Children dance and stretch with an appreciation of moving with music. Ballet exercises are introduced along with other techniques. Emphasis on good posture, rhythm, and creative work lead to an in-studio recital in both the Fall and the Spring.

August 21-December 16: The 4-month Fall session will include an in-studio Holiday Performance in December. Plus each student will receive one complimentary ticket to see City Ballet's annual presentation of The Nutcracker! Classes meet once a week. Cost: $60/month

January 2-April 29: The 4-month Spring session will include an in-studio Performance in April. Plus each student will receive two complimentary tickets to see City Ballet's annual Recital in May! Classes meet once a week. Cost: $60/month.
