Youth ballet classes are offered for 3 to 5 year olds, 5 to 8 year olds, and 8 to 12 year olds. Ballet builds strength, flexibility, grace and poise and it’s fun. These classes will introduce a solid foundation to ballet, focusing on the Cecchetti method.

It will combine Zumba choreography and moves with the Zumba lightweight toning sticks to enhance endurance and muscle strength. Zumba toning sticks are provided.
