Ballet Beginnings taught by Tessa Evans for new dancers (boys and girls) age 5-8 Wednesdays 2-2:45 or 5:15-6pm, this class moves curious and energetic participants down a path to better “dancing,” introducing concepts like musicality and movement dynamics while building body coordination and utilizing the dancer's imagination!
Class Option 1: Ballet Basics for new and progressing dancers age 6-8, Tuesdays 5-6pm or Wednesdays 4:15-5:15. This class begins to establish positions, name the names of the movements, and instruct more comprehensively on correct execution. There is still space for the flow of imagination, using lots of creative imagery and encouraging the dancers in their free expression. (Brianne and Emma teach these classes.)
Class Option 2: Ballet Basics II for new and progressing dancers age 7-9, Tuesdays and Wednesdays 5:30-6:30pm.
