This new program is specially designed for students ages 7-10 who are excited to have dance in their lives.  These students take ballet two times a week and have the opportunity to perform in the annual Muses of Terpsicorps performance at the Diana Wortham Theatre in May.  The program is run by Karen Ninos Carpenter, a former faculty member from the world renowned Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet.  Adding Tap or Contemporary Jazz to their schedule is highly recommended.  

Please talk to the staff to see if your child is ready for the Petite Muses level 1 or 2.  Beginners may be admitted after a trial class.  There are no additional fees required for this program, just a commitment to consistent attendance and a love of dance.
