Storybook Ballet — Dance into the Fairytale

At Storybook Ballet, your child’s spirit comes alive through music and dance, while the magic of children’s stories inspires their imagination. Adorned in handmade costumes, your dancer transforms into the lead character of a storybook and dramatizes the tale through enchanting choreography.

During our classes, ballet basics are mastered while pointing toes as a princess. Coordination and balance are enhanced while leaping through the jungle as a lion. Creative expression blossoms while fluttering as a fairy. Every week, our children’s ballet classes combine a new story, new costumes and new choreography to give your child the unforgettable experience of dancing into the fairytale …
