Minnetonka Parks and Recreation

MinnetonkaIn Minnetonka we offer our popular Wish Upon a Ballet™ classes during the school year and super fun Musical Theater Camps in the summer. You have to check us out!

Wish Upon a Ballet™ is a preschool ballet program created by Gina Mayer. It starts with a popular children’s story or ballet and incorporates songs, dances and creative movement games that go along with its theme. Each session focuses on a new theme so students can continue to learn and grow with our ballet program from age 3 to 6. Students learn real ballet steps and class procedures while developing their musical expression and creativity. Little bodies will grow in strength and flexibility and minds will expand and feel free to create! Each session ends with an informal performance for families.

Our Musical Theater Camps focus on a favorite movie, musical or story. The students will learn scenes, songs and dances and put together their own show! We provide the same quality instruction that you would receive at a professional theater school. All of our instructors are professional theater instructors and performers and love sharing their theater skills with children. Students will learn how to put together a show from start to finish. This includes read throughs, blocking scenes, learning music and choreography, how to use their bodies and voices effectively, character development, not to mention teamwork and much more! Every camp ends with a performance for families.

All this with the ease of a community program! You can take just one class or camp or several! The choice is yours. It is so easy for your child to try out a class and then decide if it is something they want to pursue. We feel honored to start your child’s growth in the arts.

Classes are conveniently located at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Camps are TBA.
