Pre-Ballet Class

(Dancers 2.5 years and up. Must be potty trained)

Pre-Ballet is a class that readies a child for Ballet. Pre-Ballet sets the principles and foundation for Ballet Class. Pre-Ballet students age 2.5-5 will use the lower bar to develop their Ballet skills. Pre-Ballet students will learn the language of Ballet. Ballet language includes positions: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. Wearing their hair in an elegant, tight bun, which is a Ballet tradition, but it also keeps the hair neat and out of the dancers face. Ballet is about the dance and putting the dancer’s hair in a bun keeps the attention on the dance and off of aesthetics. It is a rule and part of the beginning process of learning disciple in Ballet.  Pre-Ballet is a 30-minute class.

Start your child in a 3-5 year old Pre-Ballet class at Catherine's Dance Studio, 170 English Landing Drive, Suite 111 Parkville, MO 64152

Pre-ballet students learn

A 2.5- year student beginning a Pre-Ballet class may be in Pre-Ballet till she is 5. An older student may not spend as much time in a Pre-Ballet class due to their ability, maturity, and age in general. Each student will be assessed individually to determine readiness for Ballet.

When children start to dance they develop self-confidence, they make friends, they develop structure and start to learn what it means to have discipline. What is better for a little girl than to do all of that while listening to music and wearing fun costumes!
