Beginning at the ages of 5 - 6, dancers begin to investigate the classical ballet terminology. They begin to develop their skills, learn the relationship between music and dance and learn basic stretching techniques and movement patterns. Dancers are introduced to basic exercises that are geared towards developing a sense of placement and posture. We commence work on the concept of turnout and its uses in classical ballet aesthetic. Creativity is strongly encouraged and enjoyment of the class remains an essential component within this more structured environment.
Each quarter a different theme will be introduced, revolving around various ballets. Classes will include music from the ballet, an introduction to the story, history, composer, and choreographer, and developmentally suitable dances from the ballet. Students may earn travel stamps as each week a different aspect of the theme is explored – such as traveling to the Land of Sweets.
