Pre-ballet introduces children 4-6 to the joy and wonder of movement. Basic elements that are common throughout the world are introduced: chasser (to chase), temps levé (jump on one foot), grand jeté (leap), assembler (to jump from one foot and land on the other), and character steps such as polka. The children perform twice a year: once in Ballet Minnesota’s Classic Nutcracker, and also in a story ballet as part of the Minnesota Dance Festival.
