Parents and their children can learn to dance together as part of the Tiny Tutus class.
The lessons are not true ballet, but rather an introduction to dance with emphasis on the basic elements of movement, coordination, musicality and group interaction skills.
The instructor may call on parents or guardians to participate with their child, which means they must remain in the building for the duration of the class.
Ballet for Children is also offered at Place des Arts, giving students a taste of movement and ballet style.
Interacting with other children in a positive environment adds to a child's sense of self-awareness and no prior experience is required.
After participating in sessional classes, students may shift to ongoing classes with a recommendation from the teacher.
