Preschool Ballett

4-6 years



In these lessons, little ones can get to know classical music while taking their first steps. The classes also incorporate simple elements of movement from classical ballet. The children not only improve their posture, but can also learn a sense of rhythm with these methods. This lesson is the perfect preparation for our ballet classes, available from 7 years old.

Price: €45 per month, 90 min/once a week


Ballett

7-18 Jahre



Classical ballet trains correct body tension and posture - a valuable cornerstone for a dance career both classic and modern! Another great feature of these classes is that every lesson is accompanied by a pianist. Through a playful and fun introduction to the fundamentals, we learn the basic positions and body balance as well as ballet vocabulary ‘on the side’. With regular training, the difficulty level can then soon be increased. With enough diligence and a desire to train to a higher level, this also includes the learning of pointe work and the complete structure of the classical ballet. The courses are divided into two different age groups: 7-12 years and 13-18 years.
