Pre Ballet and Creative Dance: For ages 3-6. If your child is a mature 5-6 year old and/or has had exposure to ballet and can follow directions well, then we recommend a beginning class. If your child has a harder time focusing or leaving a parent, then we recommend this class. 3 and 4 years must start with pre ballet. This class is a great start for orienting your child with dance even if they choose jazz or hip hop later.
