Students ages three to seven are introduced to music and movement using imaginative and playful techniques in our Primary Levels. Your young dancer will experiment and learn to respond to music rhythmically through both freeform and directed ballet-based movements of their body. And most importantly, they'll have fun! Age-appropriate cognitive skills, such as counting, sequential organization, spatial awareness and comparative abstract concepts are woven into the class structure.
There is a required uniform for Primary Levels 1-3. The dress code can be found HERE.
