Our Pre-Primary ballet classes are suitable for children aged 4 to 5 years (Reception year at school). The class has a clear structure and appropriate behaviour is encouraged and rewarded. Focus is on enjoyment, positivity and engagement with the music and movement. Age appropriate ballet movements are taught using an element of story-telling, play and imagination.
Props are a popular addition to these classes. Magic wands encourage graceful use of the arms when running and tambourines help with timing and rhythm whilst dressing up in scarves and hats helps with story telling, performance and expression.
The content of the classes place an emphasis on the development of classical ballet movements and techniques learnt in this class will also provide the basic skills needed for any dance discipline.
