To be honest they are not learning ballet at even three years old, they are gaining motor development and getting used to a class environment.
Wait until she is at least three. Keep your expectations realistic.
Most professional schools of ballet will not even let them into pre-ballet until they turn four. Professional schools tend to be non-profit so they can do this. Ballet for three year olds is a money maker for a small studio, but a legitimate studio will be upfront about what you are really getting out of it. The term pre-ballet is a hint, and if the class is for four to five it is also a hint you are dealing with a professional school.
For a three year old look for classes labeled “creative movement” or “parent and me” and you will have a better experience. I would try the community center, and if he or she shows a talent or love of ballet look for a classical ballet studio when they turn five that is not a “tap, jazz, hip-hop, and ballet school” but a pure classical ballet studio, there is a huge difference.

Prfessional ballet dancer She is too young to start ballet, no matter how good she is. She can take a movement class until she is four, but ballet can't really be taught at that young of an age. Only the very basic steps are even taught to the four and up. I would just look for a movement class at the community center. When she is older you could try San Diego Ballet and see if they have a pre-ballet class. The name pre-ballet is a hint to what they are truly learning at four and five, they are just preparing to learn ballet by getting used to the terms and rules.
