YOUNG CHILDREN’S PROGRAM (ages 2-6)

The Young Children’s Program for two- to six-year-olds is designed to spark innate creativity and to begin to build a foundation for more in-depth technical training. This one-class-per-week program offers three levels of training for children.

The youngest students are introduced to the joys of dancing in a supportive environment in the Caregiver & Me class for ages 2 and 3. Creative Dance 1 and 2 for three- and four-year-olds sets a strong foundation for more formal dance study by strengthening movement/locomotive skills and flexibility and by stimulating rhythmic awareness and expressiveness. Students take class independently for 60 minutes. Introduction to Ballet 1 and 2 for five and six year-olds approach basic fundamentals of ballet (placement, port de bras, footwork, and simple vocabulary). Students will stay in their level for the duration of the full school year– placements for fall will stay the same for spring unless the instructor advises otherwise.

Curriculum and Class Levels:

  • Caregiver & Me (ages 2-3)  — one 45-minute class
  • Creative Dance 1 (minimum age: 3 years) — one 60-minute class
  • Creative Dance 2 (minimum age: 4 years) — one 60-minute class
  • Introduction to Ballet 1 (minimum age: 5-6 years) — one 60-minute class
  • Introduction to Ballet 2 (minimum age: 6 years) — one 60-minute class

Introduction to Ballet 1 students participate in a studio performance for family members at the end of the school year, usually in early May. Introduction to Ballet 2 students are eligible to participate in the Preparatory Dance Department’s year-end performance.
