Express Yourself Through Music & Dance!

Creative Movement (ages 2-3)

Creative Movement will run as a six week session, four times a year. You may register for one or all four sessions. The class will be held weekly and run 30 minutes. This is a great way to introduce dance basics to your little one. The class will focus on balance, flexibility, rhythm, beginner dance moves and your child's imagination. Dancers will need a basic leotard, tights (boys in sweatpants and t-shirt) and basic ballet shoes.  Parents are welcome to stay (please wear comfy clothes).

Bitty Ballet and/or Tiny Tappers (ages 3-5)

  • These 30 minute classes are best for dancers who are entering or enrolled in Preschool. Choose from ballet, tap or sign up for both. Our bitty ballet will introduce beginner ballet moves as the kids explore music, rhythm and balance. Tiny tappers will be an introduction to beginner tap moves in a creative class filled with song, dance and your childs imagination. Students will perform in one routine in the annual recital per class. One costume will be needed, as we will use the same cosutme for both bitty ballerinas and tiny tappers.

Kinder (Tap/Ballet/Jazz for ages 5-7)

  • Our Kinder classes are best suited for dancers entering Kindergarten & 1st grade. Choose your subjects: tap, ballet, jazz, a combination or all three. 
  • Each subject will run for 30 minutes, once a week. This class is designed to build on skills as we introduce new ones in a creative & positive enviroment. 
  • Dancers will perform one routine for each subject (tap/ballet/jazz) in our spring recital. One to two costumes may be necessary.
