SUMMER CREATIVE MOVEMENT (AGES 3-4) AND PRE-BALLET (AGES 5-6) OPTIONS

The focus for Creative Movement is finding joy in moving. We will explore different movements and musicality to enhance the natural development of each child’s locomotor skills and strength. We will use children’s literature, games, props, and imaginative ideas for total body movements and mind engagements.

The emphasis in Pre-Ballet is on rhythm, dynamic, and placement. Students will explore spatial awareness, correct alignment, teamwork, and focus while having fun. They will learn formalized steps and classroom etiquette which prepares them for the next level and beyond for more serious ballet training.

SESSIONS

Session 1 – Saturdays, June 4-25
Session 2 – Saturdays, July 9-30
