We make dance fun while learning. Classes rooted in the foundation of ballet begin at age 2 and build to age 7.

Dance with Me

Ages 2+
This class has been specially designed for 2 year olds who are not yet comfortable being in a class alone. Each child is joined in the class by a parent or caregiver who will be the child’s “dancing partner”. We use proven movement exercises, games, stories and other activities. These dancers are introduced to the joy of creative movement in a fun, family friendly musical setting.
