Ballet Coaching Program

 

Early Learning Ballet 

Serious fun for budding young dancers. Ballet & Jazz styles adapted for this age group.

Our Pre-School Dance Program has been specifically tailored to introduce dance to the very young student, by combining movement activities, creative dance play with a variety of musical accompaniment. Students will use an array of props and hand held instruments to facilitate co-ordination and musical/movement awareness.

Physical activity for young ones is necessary to build strong muscles and bones, to improve balance, posture and co-ordination, and develop an understanding of spatial awareness so necessary in our everyday physical environment. Dance activity is beneficial to heart, lung and bone health and will increase physical strength, stamina and flexibility.  

Dance helps to prepare the young student for formal education by keeping the body and brain active, and cognitively alert. Latest publications also suggest that dance training can reduce the chances of cognitive deterioration in later life...a good enough reason to encourage the love of dance from a very early age.
