Pre-Ballet is the perfect introduction to ballet principles, technique, terminology and coordination. This class focuses on giving students a foundation in proper technique while encouraging them to develop the motor skills and coordination needed to succeed. In addition to the technical aspects of the class, students will be encouraged to develop positive self-expression, music interpretation, flexibility, and strength.

Our caring, engaging, expert faculty is so excited to introduce your dancer to ballet and begin to develop their love of dance!

For fall of 2020 BW CAS Dance is offering a project learning based, hybrid model of learning. Our hybrid classes will all be working toward a dance showcase project. For more information on our hybrid learning classes please visit our dance homepage.

Pre-Ballet will be in a hybrid format that includes in person instruction three weeks (9/15, 10/20, 11/17) and virtual instruction the remaing 7 weeks. Virtual instruction will be presented in a pre-taped format. Students will be able to access, and participate in, their virtual instruction at any time throughout the week. Both in person and virtual instruction will include all aspects of a dance class including warmup, technique, and chroeography.

Pre-Ballet students will also have the opportunity to learn about the showcase they are helping to create. Students will be introduced to all aspects of performance including stage directions, dance walls and corners, stage makeup, theatre etiquette, lighting design, and sound design.
