Carnival Magic 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.  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. Prop bags = $10

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