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 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.

In September and October, our theme is the story of Rapunzel is trapped in a tower surrounded by an enchanted forest. We’ll be exploring the story of Rapunzel’s magical long hair to include movements in low, medium and high levels. 

In November and December, our theme will be the story of the Nutcracker with creative dances based on toys coming to life, dancing like the snowflakes on the way to journey to Sweetieland. There will also be the option to come to watch a relaxed live stream of the Nutcracker at the Wiltshire Music Centre with more details to follow.
