Berkeley Ballet Theater's classes for younger dancers include We Dance Together and Pre-ballet.
We Dance Together
We Dance Together is a series of creative movement classes for children ages 2 - 4, with parent participation. These classes awaken the child to music and dance, coordination, and spatial/motor skills. Gentle guidance with a parent or caregiver helps the beginner develop playful, creative dance while exploring his or her imagination in a new way. Our very young dancers will enjoy using musical instruments and entertaining props during class to connect rhythm and movement. More information
Pre-ballet classes, for children ages 4 - 7, awaken the child to music and dance, coordination, and spatial/motor skills. Gentle guidance helps the beginner develop rhythm, cooperation, playful creative dance, and basic ballet skills. The classes offer an atmosphere of fun within discipline so the children can gain a sense of accomplishment as well as exploring their love of dance and music. More information
We Dance Together, Pre-ballet, and Primary class times, locations, and tuition are on the Class and Tuition schedule.
