Twinkle Twos & Threes: 2-3 years
Theater Express: 4-5 years

Each class will be a wonderful first approach to dance. In a 45 minute class your child will explore the rhythmical joys of tap dancing, dance like Angelina ballerina, and release energy in an upbeat modern class. Each class will focus on creative dramatics which builds on the necessary gross motor skills for primary dance instruction. Students will engage in dramatic music movement, learn introductory ballet steps and discover new ways of moving as they explore the elements of dance. Through the magic of dance, dancers will enjoy moving to music from around the world, dancing with colorful props, and acting out stories and poems!

Preschool Boys Dance: 3-5 years

Does your son love to dance and move? This 45 minute class each week will cover either ballet, modern, tap and creative movement. These classes are a great way for him to learn new moves, release energy, and have fun! Boys can greatly benefit from the concentration, coordination, and strength that dance builds.
At the end of the year there will be a recital where your superstar can perform on stage and show everyone their new moves that they have learned!
