Creative Ballet (grades K-2, or ages 5-7) Tap their imagination and give it expression…
While establishing body awareness, muscle development, flexibility, coordination and basic locomotor skills, this class expands each child’s inner creativity. Exploration of space, shapes, pathways, rhythms, and movement qualities will also help your child to develop problem solving skills. We will introduce the basic Ballet positions, some preparatory steps and sequencing with special attention to posture, core strength and clean technique. We’ll also focus on musicality, phrasing, terminology, and Ballet etiquette while gaining strength and flexibility in all muscle groups – all this, wrapped in fun themes that the children will love. The warm and friendly atmosphere will foster camaraderie, cooperation, encouragement and a positive self image. Leggings and a T-shirt recommended for girls; sweats and T-shirt recommended for boys. But any loose comfortable clothes or dance attire will be acceptable.
Class Time: Mondays, 3:45-4:45
Dates: February 4 – April 1, 2013 (No class February 18)
