Children's Division - Richmond Ballet

Children's Division

Ages 4–7 / September 8, 2022 - June 4, 2023

Learning the basics

Our Invitation to the Dance (ages 4-5), Pre-Primary Ballet (age 6), and Primary Ballet (age 7) classes introduce children to the wonderful world of dance! In our beautiful, state-of-the-art ballet facility, students will dance in classes to live music played by a ballet pianist. Students have the opportunity to observe and meet our company dancers and to train with teachers who themselves were formerly professional dancers.

Students will study all the elements of our story ballets including costumes, scenic elements, and music. After viewing the company in rehearsal they will see the live performance at the theatre.

INVITATION TO THE DANCE

The School of Richmond Ballet’s Invitation to the Dance program for students (ages 4-6) introduces your child to ballet through movement and music. Your child’s natural love of dancing is enhanced through body awareness, listening skills, and rhythm in a structured, yet imaginative environment. Tuition includes two tickets (one student and one adult) for a performance opportunity during the year.
