CLASSICAL BALLET CLASSES & LEVELS


PRE-SCHOOL DANCE


    Children in Pre-school dance take a combination
    class of Ballet, Tap and Gymnastics. Students 
    learn basic Barre Exercises with careful attention 
    paid by our staff to proper placement of feet, 
    arches, arms, posture and the way the body is
    held. All Ballet and Pre-school dances are 
    taught with correct French terminology and 
    students are encouraged in the learning of the
    terms.Children learn rhythm and basic musical 
    counting. The Charlotte Blume School of Dance 
    has been successful in developing techniques
    for teaching the young child correct use of 
    muscles and body so they can understand it
    and apply it. Classes for Pre-schoolers are  
    offered at various times in the evening, daytime
    and Saturday afternoons. Each class is 1 1/2 
    hours and will include 30 minutes each of
