Summer 2024 Creative Ballet for 3-5 year olds 

Outdoor Creative Ballet classes will be held M/W/F 9:15 am-10:15am the weeks of July 15-19 and July 22-26 at The Burgdorff Center in Maplewood Village! Dance for joy on the beautiful grounds of this historic building! 

Registration opens Monday January 15th!

Tuition is $95 per 3 class week.

Sign up for 1or 2 weeks! 

Our Creative Ballet offers a unique curriculum which allows for both a joyous experience as well as basic dance skill development. These uplifting classes, for 3-5-year-olds and Kindergarteners, include movement stories, creative games, structured free dance, dance with a prop, musical interludes, dancing the roles in story ballets, and ballet basics. Each day will have a surprise "treasure box" interlude with a special activity! In keeping with our fine-arts approach, our youngest dancers will experience dancing to a wide range of music including classical, great ballet scores, contemporary classical, folk and of course beloved children’s songs.

PLEASE be sure you are comfortable with the following

OUTDOOR class cancellation policies. 

As a creative not-for-profit 501c3 organization we do not have our own studio spaces and are happy to share community space with other arts groups.Therefore if a class must be cancelled due to illness in our staff, rain or impending thunder storms we do not have indoor facilities for these classes as the older dancers are using all available indoor space.


For classes that LJD has had to cancel due to weather or staff illness students may attend by arrangement either a class the next summer week OR a fall Creative Ballet class. If multiple classes have to be cancelled by LJD we are sorry but we cannot make up more than 2 classes per child as the disruption to ongoing classes would be extensive.


The very slight chance that multiple outdoor classes could be cancelled for a run of bad weather is a risk parents need to be aware of when registering. There are fall classes on Saturdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Attendance for a make-up must be arranged however, as we can't have ongoing classes over crowded.


We cannot offer make-ups for missed classes due to a child's illness or family conflicts.


IF you are arranging a make-up class please email
