Classes will be held on Wednesday afternoons in the upstairs loft studio at the Cultural Center, September 8 – October 13, 2021. Class times by age group are as follows (updated 9/8/21):

  • Pre-K students: 3:30-4:00pm

The goal of these youth ballet classes are to instill a love of movement and dance for children ages 3-10. Young dancers will learn basic ballet movements in a positive and fun environment. Proper technique is taught through creative dances and imagination.

The structured classes will focus on the basics of gross motor movement including strength, coordination, and flexibility, as well as socialization and group learning. Every class will be a dance adventure of music and movement!
