The goal of the Children’s Program is to introduce the students to dance and ballet through movement, music, games, props, and fun. Dancers learn in an organized group setting while exploring the use of their imagination. Each lesson is a positive experience aimed to instill a sense of self-confidence and self-worth. Over the course of several weeks, students will progress through essential components, including developing motor skills, musicality, and spatial and body awareness.
