If your little ones saw a performance of the ballet classic The Nutcracker last month, chances are you heard the plea: “Mom, can I take ballet lessons?!” Fulfill your burgeoning ballerina’s dancing dreams at one of Collin County’s studios, where you’ll find lessons for all skill levels.
Start with the Pre-Ballet class for tiny dancers ages 3-4 at Plano’s The Dance Movement studio. The 45-minute, weekly class focuses on coordination, rhythm and balance while introducing the basics of ballet. The class is $60 per month. 214/509-9000; www.thedancemovement.com.

Once your ballet master in the making has the basics down, he or she can try the Ballet Technique class at Frisco’s Studio Dance Theatre. The class, for dancers ages 7 and older, includes a mixture of several styles of classical ballet and is taught using French terminology. The class is $60 per month, plus a $35 annual registration fee. 972/795-1595; www.studiodancecentre.com
