Baby Ballet Class
Age 18mos-3yrs, Thursdays, 4:00-4:30, $75/ 10 weeks
This class is a fun and imaginative “dance with me” introduction to the world of Ballet.
We explore music, rhythms, and movement in a gentle, encouraging way. Through song
and play on your little one will pick up new skills and have fun along the way. Adults are
encouraged to participate in this class with their child in a way that works for them. If a
child responds better to a parent being outside of the classroom, that is fine, but parents
should stay close, just in case! Class runs 30 mins.
Age 4, Thursday, 4:35-5:20, $100/ 10 weeks
In this class preschoolers will dive into ballet technique while still enjoying a playful and
creative class, that involves many songs and games. Using music, improvisation, and storydances this class will engage preschoolers’ active imagination, all while incorporating
proper technique and ballet terminology. It’s a perfect class for beginners or for those who
have completed Baby Ballet. Class runs 45 mins.
Age 5, Thursday, 5:25-6:10, $100/ 10 weeks
In this class dancers in kindergarten will learn fundamental ballet technique, terminology,
and musicality. They focus on linking steps together with varying rhythms, and proper foot
articulation and body alignment, while still enjoying a playful and creative atmosphere. This
class is perfect for beginners or for those who have completed Preschool Ballet. This class is
the oldest class taught by Miss Ashley before dancers graduate to Level 1 Ballet with Miss
Dana and join the ESO School of Dance. Class runs 45 mins.
