Hop, Skip, Leap, Twirl, Wiggle…..DANCE!
Marin Ballet offers a gentle introduction to dance through creative exploration in motion.
Beginning as structured play and then progressing to a pre-ballet syllabus, children ages 3 to 7 learn to use their bodies, imaginations, and emerging social skills as a means of self-expression, discovery, and cooperation.
Our Movement Exploration and Creative Movement classes are for 3 and 4 year olds and meet once weekly on Saturday mornings. Active listening, following directions, group dynamics, and going solo without parents are the foundation skills for exploring the fun of bodies in motion. We encourage taking this weekly class with a friend!
For children in Kindergarten and 1st grades, our Ballet Preparatory classes start the process of positioning the body for beginning ballet through age-appropriate exercises, postures, stretches, and studio etiquette. Rhythm studies, folk dances, and expressive movement energize weekly classes with fun and imagination.
