Ballet Classes

Ballet requires great teachers, dedication, hard training, and lots of practice. At Brooklyn Melodies, we offer Classical and Contemporary ballet classes designed to help our students become great dancers.

Ballet Preparation

This class introduces students to ballet vocabulary and dance aesthetics. This is the student’s first experience at the ballet barre where they learn basic positions and exercises.

Students begin to learn about alignment while increasing their sense of body awareness.  They learn movement patterns and sequences, and improve coordination as they experience the joy of dancing.

Ballet preparation lessons are designed for students between the ages of 3 and 4 with the aim to improve muscle coordination. Although, students at this age are quick learner, their fragile bodies are not ready for real ballet.

Therefore, in this class, we will teach them how to adapt their bodies and minds to movement and rhythm. With the right training, they will develop the flexibility and understanding they need to progress to the next level.
