The Pre-School class or 'Babies class' is for children from the age of three to five. We do lots of mimes, practice a small amount of ballet technique such as plies and a bit of modern as well. Sometimes we dance to well known chart tracks or classical music, and sometimes to nursery rhymes.
The children learn to be in a class situation and get to know some ballet terms, but it is fun too. We do some dances with a teddy bear, and use scarves for other dances.
They can wear any outfits they fancy, although most seem to choose pink! They will need some ballet shoes too.
Parents stay to watch and if necessary can join in with their little dancer. At this age the children are not expected to be perfectly behaved and will gradually become more confident as they get to know the exercises.
Thursday mornings 10.15 am in Southcote.
