young dancer Classes
Putting the fun in fundamentals.
Our Young Dancer (Mini) classes are a great introduction to dance and creative movement! Using games, imagery, and imagination, we teach these young dancers beginning dance terminology, body awareness, and coordination. We encourage a lifelong passion for learning through music and movement, making sure the right habits and mindset are taught as early as possible. Expect your dancer to learn the basic fundamentals and terminology for Ballet, Tumble, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip-Hop, and Tap! Class descriptions, dress code, and schedules are below. 
Tap & tumble

Tap & Tumble is a great combo class for a beginner dancer wanting to try a a couple different styles! We introduce rhythm and understanding of music through tap dance, allowing the tiny dancers to make music with their feet! The dancers also get the opportunity to learn basic tumbling skills in a fun and engaging way. 

Girls: Leotard and shorts/pants or skirt. Tan tap shoes with strap and buckle.
