Creative Movement & Pre-Ballet Programs

The Creative Movement Program is designed to develop motor coordination, increase spatial awareness, and provide a positive learning experience.  Work is presented in an imaginative and age-appropriate manner to maximize each child’s enjoyment.  Class size is limited to twelve students.

Creative Movement classes present an in-studio performance at the end of the school year. This optional performance gives the dancers a chance to demonstrate what they have learned during the school year.
