Mon, 06-02-2014   until   Sun, 06-22-2014

Our Young Division Ages 3-9 offers Parents to come and observe classes at the end of the semester.  At this age, BalletNova chooses to focus on technique, strength, flexibility, and coordination.  The Parent Observation is in lieu of a recital, as we prefer not to take away from classroom time with having to learn and remember a combination to perform.
