ages 7-13 Ballet
Ballet is the foundation of all styles of dance, and here at Stellar Dance Studio we offer a wide range of ballet classes for children to discover the backbone of classical dance. Through the study of ballet, your dancer will develop Vaganova ballet technique, learn to jump, turn, and tell stories with movement. We know every child has dreams of being a fairy tale character or ballet princess, and this is where it begins! Through Stellar Ballet Program our students develop excellent technique and love for dance from a young age.
Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker
For the past 3 years our Ballet students ages 6-12 participated in Moscow Ballet in ancillary roles performing side-by-side with the full Russian company in The Wiltern Theater. Children enjoy auditioning and performing roles such us party children, mice, snowflakes, snow maidens and variations.

Absolutely love this dance studio! My daughter has been attending for about a year now and she has learned so much! She used to be very shy but Stellar dance has really helped her come out of her shell. I like that the classes have an easy routine to follow and the teachers are very welcoming and professional. I highly recommend!
