GROWN UP & ME

AGES 2-4

SATURDAYS

For those too young to join Pre-Ballet, 'Grown Up & Me' is a class where grown ups and their little ones can take an entertaining and light cardio class together. Brimming with imagination play, and foundational ballet curriculum, this is a transition class in to the Academy, and primer for Pre-Ballet.

 

Parent participation is optional, but we ask you accompany your child in the class. No one judges, and enrollment is ongoing; many parents bring younger siblings of the dancers in to the room, either in a stroller, or strapped to their chest, it's all good, happy to welcome non-disruptive families in to the studio.
