Preschool Improvers Ballet (3.5+)

In our fun and relaxed Preschool classes, parents/guardians can watch the classes while their child dances in the space just in front of them. Our Preschool Improvers classes are for children who have had a bit of movement experience already. Whether children are confident dancing on their own or could do with a bit of support, we welcome all children to come along and try our creative Ballet classes together! Infant siblings are welcome to watch too. We are maintaining social distancing and working to keeping everybody as covid-safe as possible. 

On a child’s first lesson, they will be given all the props that they need for the term and ask please that they are brought to every class. Children can wear whatever they would like to and the only requirement is that it is clean on that day and there is something on the feet, such as ballet shoes, house slippers, gripped socks etc. Hair should be back from the face with a hair band/ hair clips etc away from the mouth. 

In April and May, we’d love you to join us as we adventure through Wonderland with Alice! Along the way, we’ll meet the White Rabbit, Caterpillar, Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, and Queen of Hearts. We’ll be working on communicating emotions through dance and building co-ordination skills in our ‘Wonderland obstacle course’. The children have the opportunity to free dance in a celebratory unbirthday dance, as well as a performance dance set in a rose garden.

In June and July, we’ll meet the Little Mermaid in an under and over the sea adventure dancing! We’ll journey with her as she saves the prince and falls in love, makes a deal with the sea witch, and becomes human for the very first time. This month, we also focus on teaching students about performance skills as we get ready to show our dances in our end of year performance.

*Our end of year performance is being held In the afternoon of Sunday 11th July subject to the most up to date government guidance. The performance is an opportunity for family members who normally don’t see the children dancing in their normal weekly classes to see what we get up to and celebrate their achievements. The children will only be performing with others who are in the same class as them in a short 30 minute relaxed performance. All children will be loaned a special tutu to wear for the show and receive a certificate and keepsake gift at the end. As government guidance is dependent on the previous Lockdown easing step being successfully met, I will release further information closer to the time to confirm the plan. At the moment I have two venues booked, one indoor and one outdoor to keep our options open.
