Creative Ballet

Creative Ballet 

General Information

It is well-known that ballet as an arts education involves and activates a person in the whole entirety: physically, emotionally, and mentally. 
Dance, and especially ballet, is a different art of movement repertoire that taught already from an early age can urge children to think, be aware, and creative in a very individualized way.

Dancers acknowledge the harmony of their own body moving in the space and different rhythms. They learn how to become familiar with various traces in the studio and later on with the stage, time correctly their reactions while expressing feelings and communicating with others.

Creative Ballet – A (CBA)

3-4 years: The first trip into the world of dance. Simple ballet exercises, gymnastics, rhythm, improvisation, and practices to train motor skills.

Creative Ballet – B (CBB)

5-6 years: The accent for these classes are upon the exercises for coordination, balance, and motor skills, but also the development of the most important basic positions of the body and the arm and leg positions.

Creative Ballet – C (CBC)

7-8 years: The classes are the continuation of the introductory courses CBA and CBB and are suitable for newcomers.

Creative Ballet – D (CBD) / Creative Ballet Teens (CBT)

9-12 years old children/teens The ballet classes are for school children with some ballet experience who enjoy classical ballet movements and want to train once a week.

With fun and clarity, the children learn the basis for the correct posture of the body, feet, and arms according to the physical possibilities. Children learn to experience space and rhythm individually through child-friendly teaching methods: playful rhythm exercises, gymnastics, and improvisation.

At the end of the school year, we invite all the parents (or legal guardians) to acknowledge the child’s progress by assisting in an open class.

“Out of small acorns, do big oaks grow.”

In our ballet school, all the dancers, even the very youngest, are taught exclusively by teachers who have completed their vocational training.

At DANCEARTS, all children’s courses take place several days a week. And because it can happen that the little ones, due to illness, miss one or the other course units, we allow them to make up for this in a parallel class.

Dear parents, here are a couple of skills we consider to integrate age-appropriate into our Creative Ballet classes:

Physical skills 

  •  body awareness and physical coordination
  •  body strength and resilience

Cognitive skills

  • think logically and rationally
  • observation capacities 
  • active listening
  • problem-solving actions, such as problem identification, analysis, description, looking for the roots of it, developing and implementing alternative solutions
  • develop an understanding of the different type of human movement repertoires

Emotional skills

  • awareness of the connection between body and emotional reactions
  • transformation of emotions into the feelings as conscience experience of artistic interpretation  
  • integration of face and body expressions into children’s dancing

Social skills

  • understand the role of non-verbal communication tools through dancing
  • the integration of the collaborative environment benefit into and for a personal development
  • acknowledge the universal language of dancing as an open field for contact and communication

As neuroscience explored and scientifically proved, the human brain continues to learn at any age. In other words, we keep all our lives learning. Creative Ballet offers a harmonious environment for learning the tools and skills to serve later for critical thinking or problem-solving. In other words, ballet educates every child on the harmony and the beauty of human movement.

Come, join us to dance together!
