Baby Ballet  (Pre-ballet for ages 2-5 yrs)
At Kinetics we strive to create a magical place where children learn to dance through imagination and creativity. This is a ballet-based creative movement program where children learn the basics of ballet (basic positions of arms and feet) while exploring their own movement potential. This is accomplished through the clever use of props and story-telling. All children will 'fly' if given a feather for each hand!

Some favorites include our Peter Rabbit dance, where the children each become Peter, dancing in the garden and stuffing themselves on Mr. McGregor's vegetables. Just wait till he returns home to find rabbits all over his garden! Other favorites include: Vegetable Soup, the Rainbow Dance, the Fairy Circle, Teddy the Tiger, The Elephant and more!   

Through dance and music exploration, all of our Baby Ballet Classes provide enrichment in a child’s physical, social, emotional, language, and cognitive development.  Every class provides child-centered, and age appropriate activities taught by very loving and skilled instructors.
