Little Dancers Classes for 4 & 5 Year Olds

Little Dancers is an exciting new dance offering from the School of American Ballet’s SAB OPEN division. Weekly classes for 4, 5 and young 6 year olds highlighting introductory ballet, creative movement, classical music appreciation will be offered over 14 weeks each fall and winter. No audition is required and no previous training is necessary.

Students will participate in a 45-minute class each week in SAB’s beautiful glass studios at our Lincoln Center headquarters.  Led by members of SAB’s faculty, classes will focus on teaching the fundamentals of dance, developing spatial awareness and introducing elementary ballet steps.  Live music will accompany each class, allowing students to better understand the relationship between music and dance and helping them to develop a sense of musicality.
