Primary Classes

IPAC’s Primary Education program continues the growth of its student’s self expression, creativity and technical ability through classes that promote practical training and lessons in theory. Classes, especially movement-based classes, are appropriately hands-on and take place in a nurturing, safe environment that aims to instill students with the virtues of self-discipline, teamwork, respect, and appreciation.

All Children’s classes are enrollments only. To view class schedules on your Mindbody account click on room schedule, not classes.

Discount Offers:

If you enroll your child in multiple classes there is a $25 discount on each additional class ( not Semesters)… Just a little incentive to study more art!

**Special Notice**

Due to the availability of our substitute location at the VietAid please take note that ALL classes happening on Fridays will only have 11 classes instead of the 12 ( this is not reflected in the enollment costs). This is because VietAid is closed on Nov 29th . If we have relocated to our New Home on Park St before Nov 29th, classes will be held that day and all 12 classes will be fullfilled. In the event we have not been able to relocate by this point you will have an option of the extra class being credited to the next semester or a refund for the single class.

BAllet

Fridays

Primary A / Ages 5-6 / 3:45pm-4:45pm

Primary B / Ages 7-8 / 4:45pm-5:45pm

The Fundamentals of classical Ballet are introduced using both traditional methods and fun and engaging physical activities. Classes are structured and designed to not only teach students the foundations of the Ballet vocabulary but also instill in them self-discipline and a respect for the art form. Other benefits of studying Ballet include developing body control and coordination, self-confidence, and the determination to set and reach for goals. Students should be prepared to work hard (and sometimes play!) both as an individual and as a team. Ms. Lambe’s classes focus on building proper technique while experiencing the joy of dance and movement!
