Introducing our NEW Preschool Contemporary Movement Workshop!
NEW this session, we are adding a contemporary dance class for our Preschool 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 youngest 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 Preschool Ballet dancers meets on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-6:00pm on Wednesday, September 21, September 28, October 5 and October 12. Students must also be enrolled in a Preschool 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. Please contact us if you and your child would like to schedule a time to come in during our normal business hours to tour our facility. We want to make sure that your child is comfortable attending class independently.
The last 15 minutes of the final (fourth) class will be open for observation by family and friends. Observation attendees will be able to video record and take photographs during that time.
Dress code is identical to what is worn in Preschool Ballet class. Dancers are required to wear ballet slippers. Ballet slippers can be purchased at Standing Ovation Performance Apparel, at stores such as WalMart or Target, or online. Traditionally, females wear pink ballet slippers, and males wear black or white ballet slippers, but any color is perfectly fine for Preschool Ballet classes. Dancers are encouraged to wear ballet clothes such as a leotard and tights, however the dress code at our Preschool level is very relaxed so they will be permitted to wear any comfortable clothing that allows them to move freely and modestly. Long hair should be pulled back off the face in a ballet bun, pony tail, or similar style.
- Students may not attend if they are ill or if they have been placed under quarantine. In the case of quarantine or illness, there will not be a virtual option and your child will not receive a make-up lesson or a refund.
- If government Covid restrictions were to prevent us from gathering in-person, a virtual option will be offered at the same date and time as your normal in-person class.
- Project Ballet does not require masks. However, if the government were to issue a mask mandate, we would comply.
