The Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy curriculum is designed by internationally renowned master teachers and child development experts. Your child will be inspired to pursue their dreams of dance, just like Angelina Ballerina!  Register today, and your little star with big dreams will develop the love and skills of dance that will last for a lifetime. Ages 3-6

 

Hinsdale Dance Academy also offers a tap and jazz combo class for our young children’s program.

This class introduces children to the basic steps of tap dancing and jazz.  This class promotes musicality, coordination, and rhythm, as well as sequencing, patterning, and spatial relationships.  Ages 3-6

 

Mommy and Me is an interactive class where children and parents can discover the joy of movement.  We believe a child’s (and parent’s) first experience with dance should make a positive and lasting impression. Children have fun in a safe, creative, and nurturing environment.  Ages 0-2

Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy

 

The 34-week program is inspired by the CG-animated series airing on PBS KIDS and Sprout®, Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps, and it will focus on one story book per month.  Targeted at children ages three to six years old, the program teaches beginner ballet at two levels.  The Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy curriculum was developed by dance education specialist Beverly Spell, master teacher and author of the Leap ‘N Learn program.

 

Angelina Ballerina’s voice will guide aspiring dancers through their movement lessons, and the program incorporates music from Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps, as well as custom music developed by Spell and composer Scott Killian.

 

Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy in the U.S. and Canada was launched by HIT Entertainment, one of the world’s leading children’s entertainment producers, in partnership with AB Studio Licensing.  The program already exists in the UK and Ireland, as well as Australia and New Zealand.

 

 

Angelina Ballerina, a beloved publishing property for close to three decades, is a little star with big dreams of

becoming a prima ballerina.  This feisty little mouse works hard to reach her goals and along the way, always learns from her mistakes. When little girls share in Angelina’s experiences, they’re inspired to go after their big dreams too.  In addition to the critically acclaimed story books created by Katharine Holabird and Helen Craig, Angelina Ballerina dances her way into the hearts of young girls on PBS KIDS® and Sprout® in the CG-animated series, Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps.  For more information about Angelina Ballerina, please visit www.angelinaballerina.com.
