Explorer and Discovery

Pre-K Ballet student at The Hartt School Community Division

Our youngest students begin their movement experience at age 3 in the Pre-K Program, which offers Explorer, Discovery, and Tiny Tap classes.

Preschool-aged children are introduced to the world of dance in special classes designed just for them. Activities and games develop coordination, spatial awareness, musical and rhythmic skills, and creative movement. With just the right balance of fun and discipline, children are encouraged to develop their imaginations, and express their individuality. They develop readiness for the next levels of training through activities that develop memory, attention, and appropriate participation in the group.

Students participate in Showcase Presentations at the end of each semester, open to parents and the public. All classes meet once per week for 45 minutes.
