My daughter and I had the pleasure of taking a Mommy & Me class with Ms Emma at Philadelphia Studio Ballet located in Haverford. Ms Emma was very kind, gentle and warm with all of the children and parents…most importantly she was very patient! The class is for girls and boys ages 18 months to 3 yrs of age and their parents/caregivers who may be interested in “the world of ballet through creative movement and imagery”.
After we did exercises, we moved to a circle where we sang songs and read a story and even acted the story out. She even had the children play games. We played duck, duck, goose and the children loved it!
My daughter and I had a great time. The studio was very clean and neat and you were welcomed as soon as you walked in. And as someone who has a passion for ballet, this was perfect for us! Ms Emma ran the class with a little bit of ballet, but not too much to the point that the young children in the class would get really lost, yet enough for the older children to understand and want more! And with the added touch of games, stories and songs to make it even more fun. It was very interactive for everyone involved and for everyone to be included. It was very well planned and enough for a young child to take it all in.
