Beginner Division

The Ballet Conservatory’s teaching philosophy is based upon the premise that children thrive in a loving, positive and nurturing environment. Our programs for young children are designed to incorporate learning, creativity, musicality and fun. Classes are taught by highly experienced teachers who all have a special love for teaching our youngest dancers.

Girls and boys learn coordination, ballet vocabulary, and classroom etiquette in a progressive sequence based on their development. These classes help your son or daughter develop the life-long skills of focus, discipline and confidence while having fun and expressing their creativity.
