Description

As your child gets older, their bodies grow and their coordination improves. In these classes, your child will continue to work on coordination and control of their body’s movements through stretching and basic ballet technique. We will focus more on vocabulary and variations to the basics of ballet. Through fun games, prompts, and ballet music, your child will enhance their foundation in dance. A demonstration for families and friends will be held during the last class of the session. In partnership with Princeton Dance and Theater.
