Boys and girls ages 3 – 5 will enjoy a creative dance program, which introduces them to the concepts of structured movement to music. Children learn basic dance steps such as pointing toes, creating “positions”, and learning steps to music.
Kehl School of Dance has been the pioneer of the classic pre-ballet program, which we have been perfecting for over 100 years. Our pre-ballet instructors are specially trained to engage pre-school age children in a structured program. For many dancers, this is their first “class” experience. Our instructors are patient, friendly and experienced. (We do not have student-age teachers)
Pre-ballet promotes creativity and self-confidence, as well as coordination and spatial awareness. We sing and dance our way around the room, learn to take turns and work with partners, work on skipping, jumping, balance, and some graceful movements too.
Female dancers will need to wear a basic leotard (short skirt OK), tights to cover their legs, and leather ballet shoes. You are encouraged to purchase a special student package we offer which includes a high quality cotton and lined leotard, soft and stretchy pink tights, and quality leather ballet shoes for $37 including tax. (All pink available, of course!). Dancers will need these tights and shoes for the performance. Male dancers should wear a white tee shirt and tight fitting sweatpants/leggings and black ballet shoes.
