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 30-60 minutes depending on age. This ballet program is fun and engaging, helping young kids learn ballet basics while developing a love for the art.
Most ballet studios put their youngest, least experienced teachers in charge of ballet classes for young students. However, this can often result in improper technique or lack of discipline.
At Central Utah Ballet, we do the opposite. We know early ballet classes create the foundation for your child’s experience with ballet as well as future technique and ability. That’s why we put our most experienced instructors in charge of our young kids’ ballet programs.
