Me, Myself, and I: Level 1 (Caterpillar) is a 30-minute class introducing young dancers, aged 3-4, to the world of creative movement and classical ballet fundamentals. Through play-based learning, imaginative role-playing, and sing-along songs, dancers explore the 5 elements of dance, developing gross motor skills with locomotor movements. They'll love pretending to be animals, tightrope walkers, and even astronauts on the moon, all while using fun props to enhance the experience.

Our engaging approach ensures that learning ballet techniques feels like a joyous adventure, so much so that dancers won't even realize they're learning fundamental dance elements along the way. Creative expression is encouraged throughout the class, fostering a basic understanding of locomotor movements and proper body alignment during movements across the floor.
