The Budding Ballerina!
Children from the age of 3yrs are introduced to the world of ballet in a fun and age appropriate way. We bring the magical stories of The Budding ballerina Fairies to life through dance, music, mime and play. While learning and developing valuable motor skills, the children are encouraged through imagination, role play and the use of props. The Budding Ballerina Stories are designed to encounter scenarios close to our younger students hearts from getting through a nervous first day in a new dance school to making new friends and sharing adventures! The role play in this class will encourage the beginning of the confidence, discipline and friendships attributed to the wonderful world of Dance!!!!!
Modern theatre dance compliments ballet technique well, while also encouraging the development of rhythm, musicality and performance in a fun way. It is a fundable foundation of Jazz Dance and will further enhance your child’s dance training.
