Our program for pre-school kids is designed specially for children aged from 2 to 4 years old to experience their very first ballet steps in a creative and fun setting with lots of imaginative ideas and a fun approach.
Often called "Baby Ballet" or "Kinder Ballet" our classes are specially designed for children to learn "real ballet basics" in a fun, friendly and creatively structured class. We explore music interpretation, play games and use story telling ideas to keep children engaged. Carmel Amelia School of Dance offers this very special program based on our many years of experience in teaching students from 2 years old and up.
