Tiny Toes Ballet is about exploring artistic movements for even the youngest of dancers. Students will learn about self and body awareness through resourceful movements, creative games, and song and dance. This gives students a chance to interact with their peers and gain social experience. In the class, students will start to build the foundation of ballet technique through games, songs, and movements that correlate with curriculum that they will have in the future. The encouraging and imaginative atmosphere of the class gives students a chance to express themselves through movement and dance.
