Class Information for Beginner Child 4-8 Ballet
This ballet dance class is the student's first introduction to formal ballet class structure. Ballet benefits children a lot at that age. For this slightly older age group, more difficult stretching and strengthening exercises are given, barre work is introduced with a greater emphasis on vocabulary and French ballet terminology. Musicality continues to be emphasized along with balance and coordination through the strengthening of the body core. Center floor work is introduced with continued focus on the positions of the arms, legs and feet using classical ballet vocabulary.
