First Steps Program Classes:

  • Pre-School Ballet – ages 3-4 years (Preschool)
  • Pre-Ballet – ages 4-5 years (Junior Kindergarten)
  • Combo (Ballet and Tap) – ages 3-4 years (Preschool/Junior Kindergarten)
  • JAB (Jazz, Acro and Ballet) – ages 3-4 years (Preschool/Junior Kindergarten)

As an introduction to dance for girls and boys ages 3-5 years old, this program promotes a natural sense of movement, begins to explore strength and flexibility, and helps your child to develop a sense of musicality. With instruction on basic dance technique, we offer a Ballet class, a ‘Combo’ class which combines Ballet and Tap, and a ‘JAB’ class which combines Jazz, Acro and Ballet. Children will explore movement through age-appropriate rhyming songs and stories, and use their imaginations to begin developing their dance technique. Their love of dance will blossom in a happy and fun environment!

This is a fully recreational dance program, after which dancers will either continue into our Recreational Program or be invited onto the AA tier of our Full-Time Competitive Team (our Part-Time Competitive Team only begins at age 7). We encourage you to register your Preschool child for 1-2 classes per week, and your Junior Kindergarten child for at least 2 classes per week. This will best prepare them for a more committed dance training program as they get older.
