(ages 4 - 6)

The Creative Dance program (pre-ballet) at JSSB provides a fun and nurturing environment that promotes the development of creativity and expression. It is an opportunity for children to make new friends and be physically active while building a strong foundation for a lifetime love of dance. The Creative Dance program is so much fun, they don’t even realize how much they are developing the coordination, balance, and strength required as they continue into Beginning Ballet.

The Creative Dance program is for boys and girls ages 4-6. They are grouped based on age and create the Creative Dance I, II, and III classes.  Students take one class per week which includes basic ballet, character, and drama. Enrollment is open year-round.
