Primary Ballet 2 is a weekly one class for children who are 6 on October 1 of the school year in which the class begins.
Primary Ballet 2 focuses on primary level ballet with greater complexity using the Leap ’N Learn Curriculum. Because play is a child's job and how they learn, pretend play continues to be woven into exercises throughout the class, but in decreased measure compared to younger classes. This class is the beginning of the transition program into the study of classical ballet. Students are now asked to perform many of the exercises turned-out and to combine steps to form a dance combination. Each class will focus on French terminology, musical awareness, creative movement concepts, balance, agility, gross motor development.
This class is designed with the typical physical, social, emotional and cognitive developmental abilities of 6 year olds in mind. Children must be 6 by October 1 to enroll in Primary Ballet 2. Because the curriculum is based on the age and corresponding developmental abilities of children in the fall and progresses incrementally throughout the school year, strict adherence to the age requirement is enforced.
Dress code for 6's is the Balera eggplant pinch front tank leotard, ballet pink tights, and pink leather ballet shoes. Hair must be secured in a bun.
All apparel is available at the studio. The required leotard is included in your All-Inclusive Monthly Fee!
--> Six year old students may also take hip hop, tap, or musical theatre for even more dancing fun! Ballet is recommended first as it is the foundational class for other styles of dance.
