The Children’s Program offers classes for young children from 18 months to 7 years old. Classes offered include Me & Mum, First Steps, Music & Movement, and Pre-Ballet 1-3. Children can begin ballet classes at age 18 months in the Me & Mum class which is taken with a parent. At age 3, students may enroll in First Steps which is the first class that performs in the Spring Concert. First Steps and Music & Movement meet for 45 minutes, one time per week. Pre-Ballet 1, 2 and 3 meet one time per week for one hour.
Students advance to the next level depending on their progress and are eligible to move to the Pre-Professional Ballet Program or Pre-Professional Dance Program at age 8. Students in the Children’s Program who are in First Steps and above are encouraged to perform in the Spring Concert. However, participation is an individual choice.
