How should I prepare my child on the day of ballet class?
Students should wear comfortable and non-restrictive clothing for class. We also ask that student’s hair be pulled back off their face in a ponytail or bun. Wide elastic headbands are great for shorter hair.

Do I need to buy my child ballet shoes?
No. Ballet shoes are not required for virtual ballet class.

How do we access class?
All classes will be held virtually. Join class by clicking the link listed for your session above.

Who do I contact with questions or concerns?
The ballet instructor for the class is Elizabeth Matthews. If you need to speak with her about your child, she can be reached by email
