Early Childhood Dance

Dance Classes for Ages 2-6

2017-2018 Dance Schedule

Age 3 Dance ClassesSince 1994, beginners have been our specialty! We have developed a top notch curriculum for this age group keeping in mind that dancers this age need the class to keep moving and to have fun while learning. The focus in all of our age 3-5-year-old classes is placed on early physical and social development, working on developing and refining gross motor skills and coordination. The class is structured to reinforce social skills such as taking turns and cooperating with others in a group setting.

In fact, we do so well with students in our renowned Early Childhood Program, all of our dancers, even the 3-year-olds, perform on stage in the spring recital without coaching from the audience or wings!
