Tiny Dancers

A child’s first introduction to dance begins with positive, fun and imaginative play.  It fosters self-confidence and encourages freedom of their budding expression. Fundamentals of movement are introduced through instruction and guided improvisation.  Classes include musical, physical, and cognitive challenges that aid in  developing motor skills that prepare them for bright, confident futures.

Ages 3-5

Open Program

Provides inspiring dance education as an outlet for students interested in recreational classes. The Open program provides classic foundations in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, and acrobatics. It provides boys and girls the opportunity to take weekly class(es) culminating in two annual performances.

Students choose one particular genre or take any combination of classes providing experience in fundamentals of each discipline. Dancers are placed according to experience and are continually evaluated by our faculty to insure proper assignment.

We provide a professional environment that motivates, builds self-esteem, grooms confidence, and encourages peer support—skills necessary to a child’s success in the classroom and beyond.
