As children progress from Creative Movement to Pre-Ballet, further development of age-appropriate skills in relationship to group dynamics, coordination and rhythm are emphasized. While still keeping a fun and light-hearted environment, the focus at this level is to provide students with opportunities to increase their understanding of dance classroom etiquette and body and spatial awareness. Creative games and dances integrate the gross motor skills required for galloping, skipping and leaping. Exercises that promote body alignment, posture and age appropriate stretches are introduced, and age appropriate pre-ballet exercises and positions are introduced to help develop the increased focus needed in Ballet 1.
