The Community Center is excited to announce that Miss Webster will continue to offer her ballet classes through all of July and the first two weeks of August.
The classes will introduce ballet technique at an age-appropriate level. Lower classes focus on developing body strength, gross motor skills, rhythm, musicality, and pattern execution through barre work and basic group movements on the floor. Upper classes build upon basic technique, improve strength and flexibility, and work on group synchronization through barre work, floor work, and routines. These classes do not cover pointe work. French ballet terms will be used and taught in the class.
Pre Ballet: age 3-5, 3:15-4:00 on Wednesdays (limit 10 per class)
Ballet I: age 6-9, 3:15-4:15, on Mondays (limit 8 per class)
Ballet II: age 9-12, 2:00-3:00 on Mondays (limit 8 per class)
Ballet III: age 10-12, 2:00-3:00 on Thursdays (limit 8 per class)
Please note that the age guidelines are not strict, and that the instructor may, at her discretion, move students into a level more appropriate for their skill and developmental levels.
Ana Rose Webster holds a dual degree in elementary education and dance instruction. Miss Webster has trained for over 15 years in ballet, jazz, tap, and modern dance, and is excited to bring dance instruction to Fishers Island.

Cancellations due to the nonavailability of the instructor will result in a refund. Preregistered students who give 24 hours notice will receive a refund. No partial refunds will be offered. To make a class worthwhile we must have three students; if that minimum is not met with preregistered students we will merge classes with 24 hour notice to preregistered students and the public.
Parents will be required to sign a waiver before children can participate.
