If you’re looking for ballet classes suitable for 5- and 6-year-olds, you’ve come to the right place. During this pivotal age range, your child develops their ability to play, learn, communicate, and feel emotions. With an outlet like ballet/tap classes at New Vision Dance Center, your child can exercise these skills while building physical strength and making real connections with their peers.

Accommodating All Skill Levels

In this program, your child will develop a solid understanding of ballet and tap fundamentals, as well as begin to learn some intermediate principles. Whether your 5- or 6-year-old is a beginner or has taken a dance class, our nurturing instructors lead each class so that all students’ needs are met. With their motor limitations in mind, we help them learn to follow directions, memorize dance steps, and work together to perform at our end-of-the-season showcase.

Developmental Benefits

In this ballet/tap class for 5 and 6-year-olds, our instructors go beyond terminology and technique while instructing students. As they learn the art of dance, your child will also be immersed in a fun, caring environment where they’ll feel comfortable to try new things and develop a love for this art form. As they totter across our studio floor, your child will work towards achieving the following developmental goals:

  • Learning to express emotions through dance
  • Becoming self-confident in their dance abilities
  • Working together with their peers to accomplish dance steps and routines
  • Following instructions and memorizing choreography
  • Bonding with their classmates and instructors
  • Building their physical and cognitive abilities while engaging with course material

From the time they warm up to when they leave the studio, your child will hone their creative abilities while having fun. After aging out of this class, they can continue to explore their passion for dance in our dedicated ballet, tap, jazz, or hip hop classes for ages 6 and up.

The Right Dance Studio for Your Child

At New Vision Dance Center we have been teaching kids in the Beaverton and Hillsboro areas to love dancing for many years. We strive to help develop smart dancers who care for themselves and the art form that they are learning.

What to Wear

Our ballet/tap female students must wear a leotard with tights, as well as pink ballet shoes and black tap shoes, and male students are encouraged to wear a t-shirt with bike shorts or leggings, and style appropriate black dance shoes. Children with long hair are also required to wear it in a ponytail or bun for the duration of each class. In addition, students can choose to wear a small short skirt over their leotard if they desire.

As you oversee your child from our comfortable waiting area, you can watch as they pirouette and shuffle into a more confident young person. Serving the Beaverton and Hillsboro areas, we make it easy to attend class without disrupting your family’s schedule.

Sign Up for Class Today

Dancing is an art form that exercises children’s cognitive and emotional skills just as much as their growing bodies. If your child would like to join our ballet/tap class complete our registration form, or stop by our studio. If your dancer is under the age of 5 or 6, consider enrolling them in our dance classes designed for younger children. To learn more, call New Vision Dance Center at 503-693-6166.
