Are you searching for a fun and interactive activity for your little one that teaches new skills and encourages movement?

Taught by a certified teacher who understands children and developmentally appropriate methods of teaching, this class will get your little one moving while also introducing them to the fundamentals of ballet through play inspired dance and movement.

What a great way to introduce your little one to dance so that when it is safe to resume classes in the studio, your dancer has one foot in the door!

This virtual program includes:

- 6 weeks of live engaging & interactive classes on our Virtual Studio platform, Evolutions Dance CONNECTed

- Individual dancer Enchanted Fun Kit for at home use (tutu, wings, magic wand, dancing ribbon, & a few more surprises!)  

- Access to our library of pre-recorded classes to do at home for the whole family/cohort

Princess Ballet (Ages 3-6)

Our sessional classes are a great way to introduce your little one to dance and try new and different genres without making a full year commitment. We offer a diverse selection of Preschool dance classes for children ages 1+. Our classes are age and developmentally appropriate, and because we believe that play is the foundation for learning, all dance skill development at this age is grounded in play-inspired movements, imagination, exploration and musicality! We encourage dancers to come back for multiple or repeated sessions as children will grow in confidence, independence and skills each time they come!

In order to create an even safer dance environment this year, each dancer registered in our preschool sessional classes are required to purchase an Individual ESD Prop Bag for their classes. Prop bags costs have automatically been included in your sessional tuition. Your individual ESD Prop Bag includes commonly used dance props inside an ESD dance bag, such as: a scarf, tool for musicality, magic wand, ribbon & more. Each bag will differ slightly depending on level.

Only one bag is required/dancer and is yours to keep. Please help your dancer remember to bring the bag to class each week.

** this does not apply to 4 week mini sessions. We will provide a bin of sanitized props for the duration of mini sessions which remain at the studio
