  • Description - Sacramento Academy Of Dance

    Students may begin studying classical ballet at the Sacramento Academy of Dance as early as age four. The director's approach is to make the school an exciting and fun place for children, their world apart, where ballerinas are lovely and well mannered, but work diligently to please the teacher, who will be delighted with their efforts. Class begins with carefully chosen exercises for strength and stretch, where the work is designed to stimulate their imagination as well. They laugh and become familiar with all their classmates, who will become special friends. The class progresses to the ballet barre, where the children learn positions of the feet and a few beginning ballet exercises, using the traditional French terminology. Next, we go to the center floor and learn the correct positions of the arms and fingers, jumps, turns and basic center steps. We then have fun learning a series of short dance routines, using rhythm and props. The class finishes with acrobatics, such as splits, backbends, somersaults and cartwheels. Each child sits like a little lady as they wait for their turn, and then all bow to the teacher with a thank you. The children are then off to the real world, looking forward to the next class, while dreaming of becoming beautiful ballerinas.
