RECREATIONAL BALLET PROGRAM
Our recreational programs are designed with a uniquely holistic approach to the learning of classical ballet. In addition to a strong foundation in classical ballet vocabulary, students learn about the art form as a whole, including repertoire, choreography and appreciation.
This pre-ballet program is uniquely crafted for children aged 2-5 yrs. The activities are curated to to develop the vestibular and proprioceptive systems in pre- schoolers. A well functioning vestibular and proprioceptive system lays the foundations for young children to transit into more complex movements required in classical ballet training. The program is developed by our founders, with over 15 years of experience in teaching preschool dance.
