Preschool Improvers Ballet Class

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 that is in our Preschool classes or other movement class. 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. 

In January and February, our theme is the Snow Queen! With our younger dancers we will be focussing on the version of the story used in ‘Frozen’ and our older dancers will use the more traditional version where the Snow Queen learns that love is the strongest magic of all. The hope is that this theme will coincide with some snow fall as has happened in previous years (Fingers Crossed!) and also link to Valentine’s Day! 

In March and April, our theme is everyone’s favourite flying nanny, Mary Poppins! Our younger children will be using the story used in the original film and dancing to ‘Spoonful of Sugar’, ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ and ‘Let’s Go Fly A Kite’. At the end of this term, we’ll have our Annual Show for parents at St. Margaret’s Hall. 

On a child’s first lesson to the term’s theme, 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 must be tied back from the face with a hair band/ hair clips etc away from the mouth.
