Pre-School

At Kehl, we excel in pre-school age programs. Over the years we have developed unique programs designed to capture the attention of young dancers, while teaching them the proper etiquette of being a dancer!  We have short session programs if this is your first dance experience, and also classes which meet weekly and perform in our Spring annual recital.

Class Descriptions

Mini Hip Hop

Is ballet a little too “slow” for your child?  Hip Hop  for young dancers blends a little hip hop and creative movement.  Your dancer will be rockin’ and rollin’!   Perfect for boys and girls.  New classes begin year round.

Dance attire is encouraged, so children feel like “they are going to dance class”.

We offer a package which includes a high quality cotton and lined leotard, soft and stretchy tights, and quality leather ballet shoes for $37 including tax. Jazz shoes may also be worn.  Boys can wear stretch pants and T-shirt.

Fairytale Ballet

Young students ages 3 to 5 will learn the joys of dance through connections with Fairytale stories and their characters. The class begins by creating a scene from a famous fairytale. Using props and music, the students will explore dance movement in a fun, unique environment.  Fairytales include Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, The Little Mermaid, Snow White and many more.  We have special boy costumes and characters!

Fairytale Ballet students come once per week.  Each class explores a different Fairytale/popular children’s story lasting 45 minutes.  This is a perfect first-dance experience!

Fairytale Ballet instructors are specially trained to engage pre-school age children in a structured activity.  We recommend students are potty-trained as a sign of maturity.  This could be the incentive they need!!

Parents are encouraged to watch through our observation windows/monitors.  At the end of the class, family members are invited in so students can show their costumes and excerpts from their experience.  Bring your camera!

Female dancers will need to wear a basic leotard (no skirt), tights to cover their legs, and leather-bottom ballet shoes.  We will be putting different costumes over this basic attire each class.  You are encouraged to purchase a special student package we offer which includes a high quality cotton and lined leotard, soft and stretchy tights, and quality leather ballet shoes for $37 including tax. (All pink available, of course!). Male dancers should wear a white tee shirt and tight fitting sweatpants/leggings and black ballet shoes.

Pre-Ballet / Pre-Ballet 2

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.

Tiny Tots

Our Tiny Tots program is specially designed for children between the age of 2 and 3. Over a series of classes, dancers learn to follow the instructor though a program of creative movement designed to encourage motor skills and creativity.  Children will separate from their parent or guardian over a short span of classes in order to prepare them for our regular dance programs.
