Ages: 2.5-3
Starts: September 19, Ends: December 12
Off: November 21

This class is a structured program designed for the early development of ballet and movement. It precisely meets the needs and limitations of preschoolers by providing a carefully paced sequence of exercises to develop physical conditioning with poise and grace. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, the activities are presented through music. Children learn self- discipline, listening and coordination skills, left and right discrimination, patterns in movement and pre-ballet. Class includes a recital in May. To sign up for Valet for Pre-Ballet see classes offered through St. James UMC!

Wednesdays: $258 for 12 Weeks
Times: 12:15-1:00
Ages: 3-5
Starts: September 19, Ends: December 12
Off: November 21

Tap Ballet is the perfect combination class with 20 minutes of tap and 25 minutes of ballet. Since ballet is the basis for all dance technique, the combinations of both work hand in hand. The technical training is taught through ballet, which in turn helps teach the proper shifting of weight and patterns in movement for tap. Since children naturally respond to music and movement, all of the activities are executed to fun music. Class includes recital in May. Check out the two Ballet Valet options offered (depending upon preschool dismissal time) by looking at the classes offered through St. James UMC!
