Ages 3-5: Littles Steps level 1 &2
A specially designed 45 minute class for our littlest dancers. This class focusses on the children’s natural movements, yet also incorporates basic ballet steps. The aim is to teach the children about the structure of a dance class. Children learn about taking turns, following a leader, listening to a teacher etc. We use props such as ribbons, mats and books. We balance the class between free movement, instructional movement, play and imagination.
