• Petite Feet: Ballet Adventures with Liz

    Petite Feet is filled with fun, imaginative and thoughtful exercises, games and stories that introduce children to basic ballet positions and vocabulary as well as general dance and musical concepts. The video focuses on the creative potential of dance and its storytelling possibilities, while also encouraging children to learn specific and age appropriate ballet steps, to build confidence and coordination and, of course, to have fun! Featuring original music by Doran Danoff and Liz Vacco, a colorful set by Rob Strauss, the story of the Dancing Dolls and the participation of Waldo the Walrus, Petite Feet is a great way for kids to stay active on a rainy day – and a sunny one too!

Since receiving her B.A. in Theatre Studies from Yale, Liz has been a dance, yoga and theater educator in New York City and Los Angeles. She has taught through the New York City Ballet’s Education Program and at Gabriella Charter School, a Los Angeles public charter school where all students have an hour of dance a day. She has always been a dancer who acts and an actor who dances, and she draws from both of these disciplines in her teaching and performance. Her teaching is also informed by her Master's studies in education at California State University Los Angeles.
  • We've tried some dance classes for tots locally, and even being in an actual class with other kids has not been as positive an experience as this video has!
