Preschool Dance Classes are designed to enhance fine and gross motor skills and cultivate imagination, creativity and social development in a caring environment. Students grow and develop as they learn the fundamental vocabulary and skills associated with dance.  

2.5 - 3 years
An exciting first approach to dance. We introduce a structured environment while allowing children to recognize their own individuality and body mobility. We focus on coordination and rhythm.

3 - 4 years
Combining tap and ballet, this class develops your child's coordination as well as an understanding of dance concepts and terminology. Concentration is on vocabulary, alignment and proper execution of movement as well as memorization and independence through sequential tasking. Students improve motor skills, learn basic ballet positions and begin work on simple tap movements.   

4 - 5 years
For new and returning students to explore more complex tap and ballet concepts while continuing to execute basic dance elements.  Students work on right-left awareness plus explore rhythm and tempo as they are introduced to dance class etiquette.
1 - 3 years
With parent or guardian close by, children learn the basics of dance while engaging in hands-on movement activities essential to proper development and social skills. WE focus on dance movement, hand-eye coordination, stretching, counting and rhythm. This is a great way to get children used to being in a dance studio setting with parent participation. 
3 - 5 years
In this class, your child will explore the basics of creative dance interspersed with age appropriate pre-ballet exercises. Lessons include games, stories, and music to stimulate imagination and creativity to encourage strength, flexibility, balance and precision. This will feature an end of session showcase to highlight what each dancer has learned over the course of the session. A great first dance class!
