Inspire Their Creativity

Ages 18 months-12 years / Levels Baby & Me-Level 2

 

Orlando Ballet School’s Young Dancer Division is for students ages 18 months through 12 years old. From young toddlers to pre-teens, the goal of this division is for dancers to gradually learn the fundamental movements through the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum. Students will obtain technique, strength, and flexibility. Students ages 7+ require a placement to determine the appropriate level.

Introduce them to the magic of dance while enjoying the company of other parents and babies in our studio. This 45-minute class focuses on coordination, direction, balance, dance movement, and rhythm concepts that are great for early development of kinetic skills. It will also introduce discipline while they learn to dance alongside other students. Designed for one dancer and one parent or designated guardian, this class is perfect for moms, dads and other immediate family for exercise and bonding with their little one.

Pre-Primary for 3’s (Dress Up & Dance)

Must be 3 years old by Sept. 1

Classes run September 3, 2019 to May 2, 2020

 

A fun class for three-year-old children without parent participation. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, the activities are presented through music. This 45 minute class consists of movement activities meant to develop coordination, direction, balance, and rhythm through fantasy and the utilization of colorful props. It is a perfect preparation for our Primary level class as it introduces some very basic ballet vocabulary in a creative setting for your child’s imagination.
