~NEW AND RETURNING STUDENTS WELCOME.
This class is for Tiny Dancer “graduates”, previous Ballet 1 dancers who wish to
continue their dance education, and ballerinas new to dance! Focus will be on
the fundamentals of the Russian Ballet style, a ballet barre warm up, and dance
combinations and games in the center floor. Emphasis will be learning to dance
while having lots of fun in the process. Each girl will need pink ballet flats, pink
tights and a leotard. Hair must be pulled back each class period. Bring a water
bottle. Material fee is for recital costume and covers the entire year. PLEASE
NOTE: If your daughter is 5 and has had ZERO dance experience, it is highly
recommended that she enroll in “Tiny Ballet” NOT Ballet 1. This class is a ONE
year (fall and winter semester) long commitment. There will only be ONE recital
at the end of the WINTER semester in May 2017.
