Discover Dance Tots

Watch your child's independence and confidence soar, as our dancers explore and discover the benefits of a more structured dance class. Following directions, waiting for our turn, and collectively problem-solving will encourage emotional and social development. Live singing, musical play, and sensory props will have these little ones moving and grooving with their friends and eager to return to class each week! Please wear comfortable clothing and bare feet.

Discover Dance with Me

Explore the joy of movement with your child and discover the many benefits of early childhood dance classes. We will dance, sing, and play in both one-on-one activities and group activities. Through circle activities, open exploration, and gross motor development exercises, children will blossom with class as they grow with their caregiver during this precious time together. Please wear comfortable, form-fitted clothing and bare feet. Guardian participation is required. No class July 5th.

Summer Dance Combos: Minis & Juniors

We will explore different styles of dance during this summer session including tap, ballet, jazz & hip hop. Each class will include technique, concept exploration, movement games and choreography.  This is a great way to sample many styles of dance.  Please wear comfortable, form-fitted clothing and ballet shoes OR jazz shoes. Tap shoes are not required but can be used during certain classes. No class July 5th.

Dance Parties

Dance Parties are a condensed, one-day session of dance technique, movement games, crafts, a mini-performance and much more! Participants of all levels are encouraged to get involved through these camp-style classes that are designed to help participants fill their evening with fun, educational, and movement-oriented programming.
