During this course, the children will begin to learn the core elements of ballet. They will learn basic ballet steps and jumps, continue to build their posture and improve flexibility. In practice, they will dance individually as well as in pairs and in groups. We will introduce a bit of structured learning to aid them progressing into the preparatory grades.
Level 1 builds on childrens' key motor skills and establishes the fundamentals of musicality, movement and creativity. Students are encouraged to develop their imagination and communication skills, helping them to build confidence. Music and rhythm is a central focus of this class.
We will work on development of a sense of rhythm, flexibility and strength, with an emphasis on strengthening the core muscles of the spine, stomach and feet. This is combined with a strong focus on improvisation to classical music as well as developing the initial positions of the arms and legs, dance steps, jumps and poses.
My daughter loves to dance with them! Exellent organization. Convinient time for attending. Absolutely brilliant dance teacher...
