We are excited to announce our first annual Fairytale Ballerina Camp, a weeklong camp for 4-5 and 6-7 year old students. It is our hope to provide participating students with a fun filled morning that engages them both mentally and physically with the art of ballet, movement and music. The camp will be held on Monday-Friday mornings (in July- dates to be determined)
from 9am-12pm. The mornings will include greeting and warm up, ballet class, snack, professionally taught music class, arts and crafts, ballet story time, and ballet video viewing. The week will culminate in a special in
studio performance where we will welcome family, grandparents, relatives, and friends to view what the students learned throughout the week. There
will also be a photoshoot held on the first day of camp and families will receive a free photo during the special performance.
We encourage you to spread the word about this unique and rewarding opportunity for students. Educators urge families to keep their kids captivated over the summer months and our Fairytale Ballerina camp will certainly fulfill that need for growing minds while still being fun and exciting for participants.
If you are interested in signing your child up for a week of campplease let us know. Let your friends and family know as well, as we welcome anyone from this age group- not only our own students. Keep an eye out for
more information to follow!

 

 

 
WHAT IS CREATIVE MOVEMENT

* Creative Movement , for 3 year olds, is dance in early elementary education. It is designed to introduce children to:


* Non-locomotive skills, Rhythmic skills, Locomotive skills
Gross Motor skills
These skills are explored through the use of several musical styles, imagery, stories, and songs.

 

*Gentle flexibility and strengthening exercises are done sitting on the floor, and are made fun and enjoyable by imagery.
Children are helped to perform these movements in the most natural and correct fashion.

 

*Good listening skills, manners, and following directions are emphasized in each class in an atmosphere that is informal, flexible, playful, and satisfying to the children.

WHAT IS PRE-BALLET

Pre-Ballet, for four year olds, incorporates all of the skills and activities from Creative Movement, but on a higher, age-appropriate level. Children will also begin to learn the most basic ballet positions and steps and their French terms.

 

Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet students will perform their end of the year performance in the studio.
