FAQs

What should my child wear for class?


Your child should wear clothing that is comfortable to move in. We recommend a simple t-shirt, leotard, leggings, tight, ballet skirt, or shorts. When choosing footwear for class, please be mindful of the type of flooring you have at home. Dancing barefoot, using non-slip grip socks, or wearing ballet slippers are great options! As is the standard in most dance classes, it's helpful to have hair pulled back and not to wear jewelry.




How large are classes?


Individualized attention is key when learning in dance. For this reason, Crafterina® Virtual Lessons are capped at 10-12 students via Zoom per lesson.




What ages are classes for?


At this time, Crafterina® Virtual Ballet Lessons are geared for young dancers ages 3-7.




What will my child learn?


Dancing sparks the imagination and inspires the heart! Each 45 minute lesson includes a basic ballet class with age appropriate ballet vocabulary and movement concepts. Participants will also learn a themed movement activity and get to play a dancing game at the end of the lesson!
