Pre-ballet lessons use a fun and imaginative syllabus to playfully introduce French ballet terminology, age-appropriate ballet technique, teamwork, self-discipline, and ballet etiquette.
- Pre-ballet 3 – 5 yrs old
- Level K 5 – 6 years old
These classes meet once a week for one hour. Our Pre-ballet teachers include: Kattie Gutierrez, Kristy Nilsson, and Rachel Switzer Read more about our teachers here. Regardless of a child’s experience and ability, Ballet Center of Houston offers a broad curriculum starting with beginner classes for those who want to try ballet to advanced training for pre-professionals. In May, students at all levels have the option to dance in our end of the year performance, giving them an opportunity to perform before an audience and to show friends and family their progress and what they have learned during the year. This event called The HRB Choreography Project with BCH Student Recitals held in conjunction with Houston Repertoire Ballet. In even-numbered years we perform in theater costumes and odd-numbered years we perform in conservatory dress.
Class attire requirements can be found here.
We are so excited to be starting a new year of pre-ballet with your youngest ballerinas! We can’t wait to get to know these young students and watch them grow and learn throughout the year. In our class, we’ll be using our imaginations as a fun way to learn ballet terminology, positions and movements.
