Caulfield School of Dance offers our Preschool Ballet courses as an excellent introduction to dance for students up to age 5.
Preschool Ballet courses develop creativity, physical self-expression, flexibility, coordination, rhythm, and cooperation. Using classical, popular, and world music as well as children’s rhymes and songs, these courses are composed of structured exercises sometimes “disguised” as games which encourage students to gain poise through classical positions and lines, and the coordination for progressively more complex movement patterns.
Each once-a-week Preschool Ballet course prepares a performance piece for our annual spring stage production, an exciting experience that develops memory, musicality, team building, and self-confidence.
Students may take more than one of the once-a-week Preschool Ballet course offered in a year, but only with the understanding that they may therefore be performing in more than 2 (up to 5) of our yearend shows.
