Introducing our NEW Preparatory Contemporary Movement Workshop!

NEW this session, we are adding a contemporary dance class for our Preparatory students. This Contemporary Movement Workshop meets for four weeks and is offered as an add-on option for our enrolled Preschool Ballet students.

This workshop serves to introduce our beginning level dancers to the intuitive, expressive, and dynamic movements of contemporary dance. During this four week workshop, dancers will attend age appropriate lessons that expand upon their developing knowledge of classical ballet by broadening their movement vocabulary to include concepts such as oppositional force, counter balance, floor work, improvisation and using pedestrian and natural movements to complement and expand their ballet skills.

The Contemporary Movement Workshop for Preparatory Ballet dancers meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-6:45pm on Wednesday, September 21, September 28, October 5 and October 12. Students must also be enrolled in a Preparatory Ballet class.

Drop-off and pick-up

 Parents should bring their child into the Project Ballet lobby and wait for class to begin. Please plan to arrive about five minutes early to change into ballet shoes and take off your coat, etc. A minute or two before class is scheduled to start, our staff will take attendance and have the children line-up in the lobby to head into the classroom. Once the children have left with their teacher to begin class, parents are free to leave or you may wait in our lobby for the duration of the class. Please make sure to return promptly at the end of class. Your child's teacher will bring them back out to the lobby when class is over.
