Our Tiny Tot Ballet program is specifically designed to provide a fun and supportive environment for developing a positive attitude toward ballet that encourages a life-long love of dance and a desire to grow into a confident and capable ballerina and adult.

Using frequent praise, laughter, and small rewards to make class time fun and enjoyable, our Tiny Tot Ballet teachers encourage students to develop creativity, musicality, and dramatic expression.

 

We foster an environment where students relate easily to teachers, so they are comfortable following lessons with their classmates. Tiny Tot Ballet lays the critical foundation for our youngest students to develop the confidence essential for the freedom of movement that will remain with them forever.

Tiny Tot Ballet utilizes the RAD’s Dance to Your Own Tune curriculum, delightful and fun lessons designed to motivate our youngest dancers. This gentle and playful introduction to the classical ballet world includes: skipping, galloping, hopping, jumping with two feet, running, free movement, using hands to express feeling, and even twirling your skirt. These elements of coordination and strength are the early building blocks of dance training that often entice our students to fall in love with ballet and inspires them to continue developing dance skills with us for years.

 

Many of our students remain at our studios throughout their childhoods because we provide opportunities to receive RAD instruction through high school, audition for our para-professional training company, and explore tap, jazz, character, and modern dance.  The depth and breadth of our program are unparalleled in the Santa Clarita Valley.
