FAIRYTALE STORY BALLET
Story Ballet is designed to introduce children to music and movement through a structured class that filled with creativity and group interaction. Many different props and songs are used to make the class fun, and basic ballet steps and rhythm awareness will also be introduced. Class ends with a fairytale story set to dance. These classes will prepare little ones for whatever comes next… sports, dance and especially school.
This class is created for the dancer who wants the best of both worlds: learning basic ballet positions and movements in the first half of class; and learning jazz dance progressions (movements across the floor) in the second half of class. Dancers will never stop moving in this class and will have fun learning jazz dance combinations set to musical theater and contemporary songs. This is the perfect class for the budding dancer or musical theater performer!

Each half of the class ends with dancing to a guided story or an actual dance.
