Central Utah Ballet’s Ballet for Kids Programs

Central Utah Ballet offers ballet programs for children 3 years old and up. Our kids ballet programs include a toddler/kids program for ages 3-5 and a children’s program for ages 6-12. Central Utah Ballet also offers Junior and Senior Company/Pre-Professional Trainee program that builds students’ skills further and prepares them for college or professional ballet opportunities.

Kids Pre-Ballet for 3-5 Year Olds

Central Utah Ballet offers a pre-ballet program for kids ages 3-5. These programs are offered in once-a-week sections that last between 30 minutes and one hour depending on the age. This ballet program is fun and engaging, helping young kids learn ballet basics while developing a love for the art.

What makes Central Utah Ballet’s kids ballet programs different from other ballet studios is the instructors. Most ballet studios will put their youngest, least experienced teachers in charge of ballet classes for the youngest students. However, this can often result in improper technique or form or lack of discipline.

At Central Utah Ballet, we do the opposite. We know that early ballet classes create the foundation not only for the child’s experience with ballet, but also for all future technique and ability. That’s why we put our most experienced instructors in charge of our young kids’ ballet programs.
