Summer Dance Classes
WISH UPON A BALLET (AGES 3-6)
TUESDAYS, 5:30PM - 6:15PM, JULY 11 - AUGUST 15
Wish Upon a Ballet is a dance program for children that incorporates popular children’s stories as well as ballet stories to create a dance class that is more than ballet steps. Using musical instruments,parachutes and scarves we will create a complete fairy tale experience while we skip, leap, jump and spin. This way an introduction to the movements and vocabulary of ballet are taught in a fun and creative manner. Children will learn an appreciation of dance and music while developing strength and flexibility. Parents, family and friends will be invited to observe a special performance at the end of each session. Come join the fun! Girls and boys will need ballet shoes. Girls should wear a leotard and tights. Boys should wear comfortable clothes they can move around in. Shoes will be available to order on the first day of class for an extra fee. Students must be potty trained.
