Early Childhood Program

(Ages 4-5)

NOBA’s Early Childhood Program returns to NORD centers with ballet/creative movement classes, continuing the excellent training in our nationally recognized curriculum. Please see below for a schedule of classes and locations. This program offers a unique opportunity for the very young dancer to begin ballet within a creative and enjoyable yet structured class. Teaching artists introduce sequential training with solidly crafted choreography, developing an understanding of the role of music as well as interpersonal skills such as teamwork and discipline. Students will also be featured in a special costumed culminating Neighborhood Concert Series performance at their class location.

  • Classes are held in person; dates vary per location/class.
  • No prior dance experience necessary.
