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 the theme of the week. Using props, music and creative costuming, the students will explore dance movement in a fun, unique environment. Fairytales include Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, The Little Mermaid, The Nutcracker and many more. Boys are encourage to join the fun with special costumes and characters.
Fairytale Ballet students come once per week for a 45 minute class. 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.
