About Pre-Ballet
Pre-Ballet Classs

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