Ballet for Classical Little Girls
Having our little girl start learning some ballet basics at an early age has been amazing! We choose our sessions very careful, knowing that we only wanted classical dress, music, and movement. We ultimately ended up going with an incredibly talented private instructor who fully understands the ballet experience we would like our children to enjoy.
Why Classical Ballet?
When learning classical ballet the girls learn discipline, and have fun. They are part of a group, dressed in uniform, where each member must do their part for a smooth class or performance. French terms build their vocabulary and introduce them to a foreign language, and classical music fills their minds with beauty and goodness! As St Augustine says, “Learn to dance so when you get to Heaven the angels know what to do with you! We have a matching St. Augustine Ballet Feet Positions Print for sale over in the market.
A Beginner Ballet Review Game!
We meet one a week for about 45 minuets per class. Our class is amazing, and the girls love it so much, I wanted to bring a little ballet home to inspire the girls to practice in an informal way. I started these dice with all the different positions the girls learned first but then switched my strategy! I created the first dice set of just feet positions, which you can get here! We have had such fun putting it together, and practicing our feet positions!
Roll the dice, and copy the feet positions shown! Girls may take turns and if they can’t read they can try and recall from memory the proper name of the position they rolled.
How to Fold the Dice!
- Glue or tape
- Laminator – totally optional but makes for a more sturdy dice. If you laminate, cut it out first, then laminate and fold. Use a hot glue gun for best results on laminated paper.
First purchase and print the dice template.
Then cut it out!
Next, flip it over and fold the sides up.
Then fold the tabs.
It should look like this.
Grab your glue stick or tape, and add it to each tab.
Fold the dice up by connecting the tabs to the sides!
Your little girl can roll the dice over and over to jump into these classical ballet positions for review and fun!
