How to Recognize An Excellent Kid's Ballet Class
- Children, ages 5-7, should not start formal ballet training until they are nearing eight years of age. Little 5-7 year old bodies are not ready for the strenuous demands of formal ballet training. Your child can start building a ballet foundation in our pre-ballet classes.
- Look for a non-competitive ballet school. Competitive ballet schools have their place but not with very young children. Little kids are not ready for competition. At our non-competitive school students, staff, and parents are friendly, less stressed, and more relaxed.
- Find a class where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for your child. Look for a dance studio with 'sprung' floors that 'give' to protect little feet and ankles.
- Seek out ballet dance schools with accommodating customer policies like a guaranteed credit if you don't like your class for any reason.
- And look for a school that has expert ballet teachers who will give your child personalized attention so they will progress quickly and safely.
