Does your child pretend to be a ballet dancer? Then he or she will love this virtual class designed for our newest ballet students. Ms. Tyra uses musical activities to teach balance, rhythm, movement and coordination, along with basic ballet steps. They'll learn the French words for the ballet movements too. The main purpose is to gently encourage our beginning dancers so they gain confidence in a social and relaxed environment. This class is a combination of Hello Toes and PreBallet for any child interested in learning ballet basics. Ballet attire recommended.
