Ballet foundation, jazz fun, and making friends!


A special 30-min weekly class for 4 year olds.  It includes both introductory ballet steps, jazz basics and imaginative story-based free movement.  Students at this level take part in an annual informal presentation class with parents as an audience, plus an end-of-year theatre show every second year.
