Children's 3-7

Pre-Ballet - Ages 6 to 7

Pre-Ballet is designed to fully transition the student from creative dance forms to a classical ballet class.

As students advance from Fundamentals of Dance, new exciting opportunities and standards await them. Ballet terminology, class structure, and introductory steps will be introduced in this course. Pre-Ballet emphasizes creative expression through movement to music. All students are required to bring a small notebook to class to notate ballet terminology and practice exercises for homework. Ballet shoes are required for this level. Classes meet once a week for 45 minutes.

Performance Opportunities: Students at this level are eligible to participate in the Children’s Showcase in May. Pre-Ballet students also become eligible to audition for Kansas City Ballet’s The Nutcracker. Acceptance and casting for the production are at the sole discretion of the Artistic Staff of the Kansas City Ballet’s professional company.
