Children's classes introduce students to the world of dance through music and movement. Creative movement and ballet fundamentals for young students are tailored to meet the developmental needs of children according to their age. Students engage in movement exploration that develops into the more structured study of classical ballet. Creativity is emphasized to encourage the artistic exploration of movement and allow the child's natural talent and skills to be discovered.
