This popular combination class is designed for students to express their individuality through the art of dance. The Pre-Ballet B class introduces young students to ballet, tap, and basic tumbling skills through imagination activities, movement games and singing. Students will have fun learning dance along with the use of props such as pom pons, hula hoops, parachutes and bean bags. Students will continue to enjoy expressing themselves through the art of dance in this fun and interactive class. This class is built on the basic movements learned in the Pre-Ballet A combination class but is still appropriate for the first-time dancer. At this level, students will learn more challenging tap and ballet skills through imagination activities, movement games and singing. Dancers will enjoy learning basic ballet and tap terminology along with fun and engaging games.
