EDCN CoursesPRE-BALLET COURSES

Our Pre-Ballet Courses are a complement to EDCN’s Educational Project, and they aim to offer training in Dance and promote it among the youngest ages. At the same time, it is also their purpose to attract new candidates to EDCN’s regular courses.

The Pre-Ballet Courses are an introduction to dance education for primary-school aged children whose aim is to provide these age groups with basic dance techniques that will allow them to later pursue their studies in this area. Although the Pre-Ballet Courses are part of an independent, non-professional project, they are an important introduction to dance for children in those age groups and, as such, they take place in a shared environment with professional courses, as defined in our Internal Regulations.
