Creative Dance & Pre-Ballet

Creative Dance: 

(Ages 4-7) Is your child always moving to music or fascinated by dance? Then Creative Dance is the place to be!  It’s a great introduction to fundamental movement skills, in an atmosphere of discovery and fun.
Creative Dance is offered in two levels, both providing an exciting dance experience that introduces fundamental movement skills through creative improvisation, play and guided discovery. Creative Dance I is for children who are four years old in September, Creative Dance II is for children who are five years old in September. All Creative Dance students participate in the Dance Lecture Demonstration at the end of the school year.


(Ages 6-7)
Introduce your child to the principals of movement, preparing them for the wonderful world of dance.  PreBallet students learn the joy of self-expression and at the same time develop strength, flexibility and command of the body.  Dancers in PreBallet are at least six years old in September.  PreBallet students also have fun performing in the Dance Lecture Demonstration at the end of the school year.

Lecture Demonstration:

Creative Dance and PreBallet classes will share a Lecture Demonstration at the end of the school year. The Lecture Demonstration introduces the young dancers to the stage in an informal atmosphere with their teacher on stage with them presenting their growth as dancers.
