Creative Division (ages 3-4)

Our Creative Division gives students' an early introduction to the world of ballet. It provides children with a fun and creative atmosphere that inspires creativity and encourages our students to express themselves through their love of dance. These classes are a prelude to formal ballet instruction. They introduce basic ballet vocabulary and movement through engaging activities and exercises. Our goal is to begin to foster the love of dance in your little one. Creative Movement students participate in the end-of-the-year dance demonstration in the Chapman Cultural Center.
