Petite Feet uses engaging and imaginative exercises, games and stories to introduce children to basic ballet positions and vocabulary, as well as general dance and musical concepts.
Focusing on the creative potential of dance and its storytelling possibilities, Petite Feet encourages children between the ages of 2-5 to learn fundamental and age-appropriate ballet steps, to build confidence and coordination, and, of course, to have fun!
Featuring original music and a colorful set, along with the Story of the Dancing Dolls and some help from Waldo the Walrus, Petite Feet is a great way for kids to stay active on a rainy day—and a sunny one too!
