Kinderballet™ Mummy and Me
Ages: 2 to 3 years
Our “Mummy and Me” program is offered to younger children, aged between 2 and 3 years. It gives Mum (or the primary care giver) an opportunity to join in and share their child’s experience.
Ages: 3/3.5 to 5 years
The ‘Tots’ program is for children who are ready to take instruction from a teacher and work independently of their parent. Children are introduced to the idea of working in a group under the guidance of a teacher.
While it is important to us to give the children a fun and positive experience, we also feel strongly about teaching them the basics of dance. This differentiates us from activities where the goal is predominantly to entertain or just amuse children, sometimes with completely different class content each week.
Ages: 4 to 5 years
The ‘Kiddies’ program is for children who are in their final year of pre school prior to going to school. Children are expected to be more acquainted with working in a group under the guidance of a teacher.
The program aims to present a ballet class in a way that will keep a small child’s interest by having fun and being imaginative.
The programs become a little more complex as the year progresses, to accommodate the children’s preparation for school readiness.
While all children have varied co-ordination abilities, we try and aim to teach all children to skip prior to them going to school.
Kinderballet™ Next Steps
Ages: 5 to 7 years
Take Your Next Steps with Kinderballet™
Following on from the preschool Kinderballet™ programs, Next Steps is developed to be an inspiring, challenging and fun approach to learning classical ballet.
Inspiring – Expressing stories through movement – experiencing great traditional classical ballets. Inspires individual response to music and dancing.
Challenging – Developing basic classical ballet technique and increasing the range of ballet steps and the ways in which to execute them.
Fun – The emphasis is still on your child’s enjoyment without neglecting the importance of laying solid foundations of dance tuition.
“My daughter Eva attended Miss Sophia’s dance classes when she was 3. It was an amazingly nurturing environment and I can not speak highly enough of Miss Sophia herself. Eva had the best time and the classes helped with her coordination. I cannot recommend these classes highly enough!” – Negar
