New ballet classes for ages 3-10 and up are starting at Quincy's YMCA, and you do not have to be a full member of the YMCA to register.

Ballet and Creative Movement
Instructor Siobhan O’Brien has studied Vagonova and Cechetti methods with Deboreah Pinkney and Irene Merrill on Cape Cod. Siobhan enjoyed teaching at the Falmouth and Barnstable Conservatory and performed with the Mid-Cape Ballet. The primary goal of the YMCA Ballet program is to build self-esteem– always putting a strong emphasis on cooperation and the joy of movement!

Pre-Ballet
45 min. class (Ages 3-4) This class is a blend of creative movement, music and improvisation. It provides an age appropriate introduction to classical dance. Imagination, expressiveness and the joy of movement are the focus for our younges dancers!

Ballet Stories
45 min. class (Ages 4-6) This unique approach provides an introduction to dance and drama using stories, props, music and mime to inspire and instruct. The focus of this 45 minute class is creativity and cooperation with other children.

Ballet I
55-min. class (Ages 5-6) Ballet I introduces young dancers to barre work, position of feet and arms and proper dance vocabulary. Children learn basic steps including polka, chasse, saute, turning, and partner patterns. A continued
emphasis is placed on cooperation,expressiveness and the joy of movement!

Ballet II
55-min. class (Ages 7-9) Ballet II includes a longer barre segment than Ballet
I. Additional attention is given to correct posture, balance, flexibility and strength as a dancer. New steps and patterns are introduced along with more challenging combinations. Musicality and expressiveness are developed further.

Ballet Basics for Girls
55 min. class (Ages 10+) This classical dance class begins with barre work—progressing to simple combinations across the floor. Relationships
between music, movement, ourselves and other dancers is explored. This class provides the foundation for further study of dance techniques. The primary
focus of this class is to build confidence and discover each girls unique talent and abilities.
