Young Dancer Division

Does your child love to twirl, play, make believe and dress up?         

Please pardon our appearance as we update our website

Your dancer will love our Young Dancer Ballet Classes with our Tiny Toes and Fancy Feet Ballet & Shooting Stars Curriculum! Every week our young dancers hop, skip and twirl through an exciting adventure with a new adventure every month! We will encourage your child’s creativity and independence in a fun, safe and supportive atmosphere. You will see your dancer blossom before your eyes! We use coloring pages, sticker charts and award certificates in our Tiny Toes (preschool) classes and Fancy Feet (kindergarten and grade 1) to celebrate your child’s success! Shooting Stars is designed for children in 2nd and 3rd grade and we still use stickers to celebrate their success along the way.

What Do our Young Dancers do In Class Every Week?

  • Class begins by warming up our muscles, stretching and reviewing our ballet foot & arm positions during a circle warm—up.
  • We practice our Ballerina dance steps (and review their fancy french names) like relevé, plié, and jeté and so much more!
  • Travel to magical lands and pretend to be things like beautiful flowers, fairies, birds, bees, and butterflies.
  • Each month is based on a magical theme like Fairy Garden Adventure or It’s Spring!
  • We practice our  dance routine that we can’t WAIT to perform for you! We have mini-shows in January, February, March!
  • Class ends with your child getting a stamp or sticker to reward and celebrate his/her progress and success!

Observation Made Easy

Our Tiny Toes, Fancy Feet and Shooting Stars Ballet classes have mini-shows from January-March when we invite parents into our classroom to observe the last 5 minutes class (the last class every month) so that they can present their Little Ballerinas dance!

“Garance and her staff do an amazing job instilling their love of dance into their little ballerinas – highly recommended!

— Elin, Parent

“The Ballet Center is hands down one of the best dance schools in the entire state. If you see one of their shows at the end of the year you’ll see the quality of their instruction.”

— Tom, Parent
