Today is Ballet Day! Your ballet dancer leaps and twirls out of the car and into the beautiful Cantril School Building excited for their first ballet class! The sun-lit building hosts a smiling ballet teacher who greets your child with a warm "hello!" 


The class begins with a terminology study. Your child has never learned French before! What a fun way to be introduced to ballet with a French word of the day! Your dancer says the step, it's meaning and then learns how to perform it! They even get a special worksheet to take home and practice writing the word, along with a coloring a page! 

Next, the class performs some stretches on the floor complete with scarves. Lovely classical music plays as your child watches the scarf flow high and low as they imitate butterfly wings, then swan wings, then stretch to their toes... increasing flexibility and building grace. 

The excitement continues with a themed center barre! This is where the real ballet learning begins! Your dancer learns about turn out, and performs simple movements such as pliés, tendus, piqués and relevés!

Shuffling is heard as your child's ballet class transitions to learning to dance across the floor! With obstacles that help improve balance like balance beams and balance domes, cones and more! This is where your ballerina learns to relevé march across the floor, gallop and skip! 

Now that they've practiced their skills, it's time to put everything together in a creative ballet exploration. In this prompted exercise, your child works with their classmates to create a themed choreographed routine using flashcards. Today the flashcards include what the dancers where to ballet class. The dancers mix up the cards and perform the movement prompts mimicking getting ready for ballet class. You smile with delight as you hear the giggles in the lobby. 

Finally, the class gathers in a closing circle. The instructor leads your ballerina in a reverence, which is the proper goodbye in any ballet class. Class ends with the distribution of the terminology coloring pages. Your child leaps out of class with pure joy and excitement ready to show you what they learned that day!

Imagine, a ballet class where young dancers aged 3 to 5 twirl into the enchanting world of classical dance for the very first time. In Ballet Exploration, we introduce the grace and beauty of ballet through play-based adventures, guided by the enriching Dance to Learn® Curriculum. From whimsical warm-ups to story-driven skill exploration and an enchanting obstacle course that unveils a new narrative each lesson, every plié and pirouette is a step towards imagination and growth. As the class concludes with a free dance exploration, children express themselves freely, transported by the magic of ballet and their own boundless creativity. It's an immersive experience that cultivates poise, fosters confidence, and sets the stage for a lifelong love with ballet—exactly what your child's first ballet experience should entail.
