Ballet’s new Pre-Ballet program meets Minnesota’s state pre-school standards
Ballet is excited to offer Pre-Ballet (ages 3-4) and Level I-1 (ages 5-6) classes
that meet Minnesota state standards for preschool. SCB has
also redeveloped the curriculum for the first three years of ballet (Pre-Ballet
through Level I-3) so that it is developmentally appropriate, fun, and gives
young dancers a strong foundation to launch them into the Vaganova method of
ballet taught at St. Croix Ballet.
SCB’s pre-ballet program was developed by
long-time SCB ballet instructor Abbie Defiel Kaufenberg. Abbie is a certified
Minnesota teacher, with both k-6 elementary and k-12 French licenses, and
teaches at Stillwater Jr. High. Susan Hovey, SCB Director, is also a Minnesota
certified teacher for English Learners (EL). She teaches and advises at Skyview
Elementary, Oakdale. Ms. Abbie and Ms. Susan oversee SCB’s pre-ballet
program (Pre-Ballet, ages 3-4; Level I-1, ages 5-6).
