Your child’s first dance class should be a magical experience, and we can’t wait to make sure that it is. Young children naturally respond to music and movement and every child benefits from exposure to the arts. Watch your little one’s eyes light up as they walk out on to the dance floor for the first time. Nurturing teachers will guide your child as they learn body control, alignment, posture, and correct dance positioning. The life lessons that are taught in the studio go far beyond just dance steps. Your child will learn confidence, self-control, teamwork, and focus. From taking turns, to encouraging their classmates – the social interactions in dance class will help your child find success in all areas of life.

Our primary program is designed for ages 1-7 years old, with varied levels to meet your child’s needs. Classes are available in ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop. We offer recommendations for age groups for classes, but we know that each child is an individual. If you have any questions about the best fit for your child, we’d love to chat and help you find the perfect class. When your child is ready to dance, we are ready for them.
