What to Expect from your class

Dress Requirements: Students should wear hair up in a bun or braid, pink leotard and tights, pink ballet slippers. They can wear tutus or skirts but will need to take them off for some of the class.  Tumbling skills are minimal, but tutus and skirts get in the way.  They will often run around until they get used to the class structure (This is completely normal at this age).  We suggest parents stay for class until your child is ready to be without you. Do not expect your child to understand all the concepts until they have been in class for a while, all children learn at their own pace and should be comfortable and happy when attending class.  We always incorporate tumbling and movement concepts to the younger students so they can have fun and still learn what they need to for classes in the future.
