Summer Ballet Dress Code

Dancers attending for summer sessions do NOT need to purchased a class leotard as we will be using the summer to place them for the fall. Our dress code is more lax in the summer, but we do prefer that all dancers taking ballet are in a leotard of some kind, tights and ballet slippers. Hair should be pulled off the face and in a bun for intermediate and advanced classes.

Itty Bitty Dance Sessions

Our Itty Bitty session classes for dancers ages 18 months to 3 years of age. These classes are a fun way to develop coordination, strength, and musicality in a really fun setting! Dancers will get to use props and music to enhance their experience and excite their imaginations.

Summer session runs for one week and the dancers meet Monday trough Thursday. Dancers may wear anything that is easy to move it, tights, leggings, jogging pants, leotards, tutus etc.  Ballet slippers are recommended.

These are Parent Participation classes. A parent, grandparent, guardian, or family member over 18 should accompany the dancer.

Beginning Ballet Sessions

Dancers learn to experience dance in a fun environment.  This is a ballet based class and dancers begin to learn basic terms and concepts associated with ballet.  The class uses age appropriate music, movement, and memory games.

Each session runs for four weeks and dancers meet once a week.

Classes are Tuesdays July 9-30th.  Morning and evening class options available.
