TSOB PRE-SCHOOL BALLET
Through structured 50 minute classes using rhythm, shape and self-expression, the very young students find themselves on a wonderful journey to discover the world of movement and dance. Each semester culminates in an observation lesson open to family and friends.
TSOB PRE-BALLET PROGRAMS
Students in the Pre-Ballet programs are introduced to movement, rhythm, space and shape through the teaching of fundamentals of locomotive motor skills and dance exercises appropriate for their ages. The structured learning environment also helps the child to develop vital social skills in a creative environment. The 50 minute class consists of floor work, basic posture rules at the ballet barre and the study of mime excerpts from classical ballets such as Nutcracker, Coppelia and The Sleeping Beauty. Each semester culminates in an observation lesson open to family and friends.

LEVELS 1-3 Level 1 (comparable to first graders in school) actually begins the use of the Nutmeg ballet curriculum.

These grade levels are usually analogous to the students’ grade in school.
