Ballet Beans is a ballet program for ages 2-6 years old. In our classes, students will learn how to take turns, how to make basic formations (lines, circles, etc.) basic ballet terminology, posture, and how to work with a partner, all while fostering a deep love and desire to dance. Creative movement and storytelling will be found in every class, as our number one priority is for our students to always have fun while dancing.
Explore, Excite & Inspire!

April 12th-June 23rd
Ages 2-3 years
Mondays / Wednesdays 10:50 am
Dancers at this age are introduced to the joy of creative movement in a fun and encouraging way. Children will begin to learn the elements of creative movement and ballet while working on socialization skills, development of coordination, strength, balance, musicality, and following instructions all while having fun! This is a drop-off class, and parents are encouraged to wait outside the studio. As this may be the child’s first drop-off class, parents are allowed inside the classroom until the child is entirely comfortable trying class on their own.
Ages 3-4 years
Wednesday / Fridays 3:45 pm
Dancers at that age are transitioning into a more structured class. They will learn how to take turns, explore creative and structured movement, all while learning French ballet terminology. This class, as well as all Ballet Beans classes, are geared towards a fun and encouraging environment supporting both girl and boy dancers!
Ages 4 1/2- 6 years
Fridays 4:45-5:30 pm
This class is geared towards dancers who are interested in a more focused ballet class. Students will work on barre work, across the floor, proper alignment, spotting, balance, and coordination, as well as still being encouraged to move freely and creatively. We always encourage ballet to be a fun and inviting practice for all!
