Youth Dance & Art

Classes for youth to encourage artistic development and growing discipline.

Beginner Ballet (ages 3-4)


Our introductory ballet class, focusing on creative movement and ballet fundamentals. This level is designed for young children who are new to dance. We will use a fun combination of books, floor exercises, games, and barre work to introduce children to the exciting world of ballet.
Saturdays (Starts Nov 4)        11:15am-12:00pm
$44 Member / $62 Non-Member



Ballet II (ages 4-6)


Ballet II builds on skills developed through several sessions of Beginner Ballet, delving deeper into proper technique and more sophisticated steps. This level is appropriate for 5-6 year olds who have not taken a dance class before, or for younger children who have already had the opportunity to learn ballet basics.

Ballet III (ages 5-7)


Designed for children who have taken ballet in the past, and have mastered the basic steps and movements. We will work to build on previous experience for a more technically challenging class, while maintaining a fun and positive learning environment. This level will offer more focused barre work and the opportunity to learn and memorize dance combinations.
