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. 

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. 

Our theme for September and October is Beauty & the Beast! Join us on a journey as we visit an enchanted castle where a prince has been turned into a beast. We’ll meet Beauty as she is held captive at the castle, but in time learns to care for and falls in love with the Beast. Our dance concept is levels and our creative activities allow students to move in low, medium and high levels. We’ll also be looking at how we show different characters in our bodies, like the different servants changed into clocks and candles at the castle! 

In November and December our fairy tale is Cinderella! We’ll meet Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother as she sends Cinderella off to the ball. We’ll dance as Cinderella when she meets the prince and flees from the palace when the clock strikes twelve! We’ll be looking at emotions in this topic and look at how we can express how we feel with our bodies through Dance. We have a special trip to the Theatre planned too where we can watch performance skills in action!
