A fun-filled introduction to ballet created especially for preschoolers. Each ballet step is associated with flower and animal characters that make it easy to remember, and the beautiful melodies and lyrics make this ballet class an engaging experience. In addition to the basic ballet steps, the classes include a warm-up, stretching and strengthening exercises, and fundamentals like basic motor skills and creative movement. The floor exercises teach children the format of a dance class, spatial directions, and working together in groups.

History

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
