Creative Movement 
Creative movement is a playful introduction to the joys of dancing, with a focus on dance steps and patterns, relationship to music, and storytelling through movement.

Pre-Ballet
Pre-Ballet is a stepping stone to the formal dance technique classes that follow in the MAGMA program. The class introduces basic classical ballet technique and class structure, together with fun movement games and improvisations. A great introduction to dance study for the young student.

Ballet 
Ballet at MAGMA offers classical ballet technique taught methodically and safely to give the young dancer a solid foundation in their dance training, and a disciplined, thoughtful environment to develop in. Classes focus on development of strength, flexibility, body awareness, musicality and artistry.

Contemporary
