Beginning Ballet Full Year
ABOUT THE CLASS
A progression of Pre Ballet. Little dancers continue to explore the fundamentals of ballet by learning basic ballet vocabulary and developing coordination. Dancers are introduced to the ballet barre for the first time. Must be at least age 6 by Sunday, September 10, 2023.
The full year session runs Monday, September 11, 2023 through Monday, June 3, 2024 with holidays listed below.
Included with this class is an option to participate in our end of year recital the weekend in June 2024. An additional $95 performance fee is required per class for participation in the recital. The fee covers costumes, theater rentals, and staffing for rehearsals. Click HERE to pay your performance fee and confirm your child’s spot in the show. For more information, please view the Performance Policy section of our Student Handbook.
Not ready to commit to the full year? While our classes are designed to be taken over the course of a full school year – and we highly encourage all students to do so – this class is also offered in semesters. Find more info and register for the first semester HERE.
Location: This is an in-person class at CityDance @ Friendship Heights, 5207 Wisconsin Ave NW Washington DC 20015.
Class capacity is 12.
