Located in the Superdome Sports Complex in Warwick, NJ, and directed by Eugene Petrov, a professional dancer from Russia with over 20 years of experience in teaching dance at all levels, The Petrov Ballet School is currently accepting registrations for their Young Children Ballet Classes.
The pre-ballet classes, for dancers ages 4 to 6, teach dance concepts through storytelling as well as playful and engaging activities. The beginner classes, for ages 6 to 7, begin to educate students in the very basic fundamentals of classical ballet training.
Boasting a state-of-the-art, climate-controlled facility, the school has three large studios which are all equipped with top-of-the-line sprung, marley floors and large observation windows. Along with lovely dressing rooms and a comfortable waiting area, this is a perfect school for any aged student from pre-ballet to pre-professional trainee to adult.
At the end of each year, the school’s youngest students perform in what is endearingly called the “Littlest Gala”, a simple, unassuming performance for family and friends that is sweet, charming and very age appropriate.
The “Littlest Gala” grooms students for eventual participation in the school’s much larger Gala Performance, during which dancers perform in front of a live audience, in preparation for a possible, professional career. Some past alumni students have successfully achieved positions within companies such as American Ballet Theatre, Washington Ballet, Ballet West II, and Houston Ballet II, to name a few.
