Pre-Dance

Our Pre-Dance class is for our newest students who have never danced before.  Typically, this class is for students approximately 3-6 years old; however, based on enrollment this class might also be the appropriate level for some older students just learning how to dance. Placement in this class is based not only on age, but also on ability.  Classes are 45 minutes long, once a week, and focus on basic tap, ballet, and tumbling skills.

Please note- We understand that all young children grow and develop at different rates. Our youngest dancers need to be potty-trained and be able to follow simple classroom directions (for instance, following the teacher’s directions and standing in line with the other children).  If we find that your child might be too young to participate in a structured class, we may ask that you bring your young-one back in 5-6 months to re-evaluate.  Thank you for your understanding; this is in consideration for all the students in the class.
