Thank you for considering the Dance Academy of Bellevue.
Your child is about to enter the magical and joyful world
of dance. Our number one goal as teachers is to encourage
and develop children's innate love of music and movement.
Due to the short attention span and immature muscles of young
dancers, the preschool or pre-ballet classes do not imitate
a strict technique class, but focus on developing the skills
and habits necessary for a successful first year of dance
technique at age 7 or 8. The goals of these classes include:
- To develop a sense of musicality and learn to recognize
beats and counts
- To develop flexibility and strength in feet, legs and
- To learn the structure of a ballet class-stretching, barre,
centrework, and across the floor
- To listen to instruction, focus and problem solve
- To learn a basic vocabulary of ballet terms in French
and basic tap skills
- To have fun and learn to love to dance!
Our Annual Recital is held in June and all students who want
a performance opportunity are encouraged to participate.
