The Portland Ballet also presents a series of free pre-ballet classes in January for ages 6-9. Each series is three classes held once a week at TPB’s studio, 6250 S.W. Capitol Highway.
The free pre classes introduce young dancers to the fundamentals of ballet and help them decide if ballet is right for them. TPB welcomes all new dancers in these commitment-free series with the goal of giving students the basic foundations and an appreciation of dance. The classes develop motor skills, creativity, confidence, social skills, balance, focus, and flexibility, all in a safe and non-competitive environment. TPB is devoted to nurturing, student-centered ballet training.
The final class acts as a placement assessment for the Curriculum Ballet program. Students must attend the full series (all three classes) but are not required to pay an audition fee. Parents who wish to enroll their children must complete a Registration Form. Class sizes are limited, and they may be cancelled if they do not meet minimum enrollment.
Dates and times: Saturdays, January 12, 19, 26, 2019, 11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. and 12:30-1:30 p.m.
-Girls: Pink tights, pink ballet shoes and a leotard of any color. No skirts or tutus.
