Preschool Twirl Program
For students 18 months to 8 years olds
Our Twirl Program is an open-enrollment program that offers dance instruction for students ages 2 through 5. Classes in the Twirl Program are divided into levels by age, which encourages each child to reach his or her highest potential. Inspire School of Ballet’s unique Twirl curriculum promotes creativity and imagination while ensuring a solid foundation of dance technique. Twirl classes are designed to progress toward the discipline and structure of a ballet class, but children may enroll in any classes that are appropriate for their age and dance experience.
Mini Twirl (18 months to 3yrs) is an exploration of dance through simple music and movement that allows the child to understand the structure of a dance class while still having the comfort of a parent in the room.
