The Children’s Program, for ages 16 months to 7 years, introduces children to the art of dance by promoting the exploration of creativity and expression through movement. This syllabus, designed by child development and dance education experts, supports the development and improvement of motor skills and coordination, attention and listening skills, plus provides a foundation for the continued study of ballet. Classes are structured in a year-long progressive curriculum that builds from year to year. Starting at age five, classes include live piano accompaniment to encourage musicality.
Enrollment in the Children’s Program is based on age, regardless of prior experience or ability, and is ongoing through June. Students must meet the appropriate age requirement by September 1 of the current school year. In the summer children may enroll in Ballet Stories or Ballet Journeys.
