Ballet Classes for Children at the WAC - ages 4+

Join Ms So-Young Hechler for children’s ballet, and get your little ballerina off on the right foot!  

Please note that ballet is currently on hold - as soon as we have sufficient enrollments, we will start the course.  

Course time:

Fridays, 1615-1715 - but can be flexible, depending on the schedules of those interested

Cost:

CHF18 per lesson for WAC members or CHF22.50 for non-members.  Fees are payable in advance by semester.  

Enrollment:

Is possible at any time, subject to space in the class.  Fees will then be pro-rated.  We need a minimum number of participants for the class to run.  You can also bring your child for a free trial class with prior arrangement, to see if they enjoy it and fit into the class.

Interested?  Please contact the Club Office Manager for more information, or fill out the on-line enrolment form.

The Benefits of Classical Ballet

Exposure to sports and the arts help children to become more well rounded young men and women. Have you thought about ballet?   Dancing is a great medium for both girls and boys, and they can start young - from 4 years.   Classical ballet may have been pushed aside in favor of tap dancing, hip-hop, jazz and other forms. But, did you know that beginning with ballet will help with these other types of dancing?

Some of the benefits of ballet for young kids are:

  • They learn to follow instructions
  • They gain a sense of discipline through learning new positions
  • They learn co-ordination, balance and how to control their bodies in motion
  • They are active and getting great exercise
  • They become comfortable performing before groups
