What is Kinder Creative Ballet?
The next progression from Toddler Creative Dance ideal for children aged 3–5 years.
The basis of the Kinder Creative Ballet curriculum consists of a gentle introduction to classical ballet and contemporary dance, designed to develop coordination, self-confidence, body awareness and social skills. The emphasis is still on creativity and enjoyment, not technique.
Kinder Creative Ballet aids social development by helping children learn basic disciplined dance studio behaviours of waiting and taking turns, following instructions, working together and having a positive attitude.
Parents/carers (only) are invited to share their little dancers dance journey by watching the class. We just respectfully ask that you please remain quiet and seated on the chairs provided.

The classes commences with a warm up and then launches into a theme for example, In the Magical Garden, At the Beach, The Magical Toy Shop, Fairies and Elves, Journey to the Moon and ends with a cool down/relaxation exercise. The children use their imagination while being challenged creatively and physically.
