Class Description

A fun class for 2.5-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 Pre-Primary 3 class as it introduces some very basic ballet vocabulary in a creative setting for your child’s imagination. Due to the nature of the course and student’s age, pre-primary 2.5 students do not have a showcase performance.
