Mini Classes

Kindergarten–2nd Grade

Full Year Program

Mini classes are designed to introduce Kindergarten–2nd grade children to the world of dance.  Instructors use age-appropriate coursework to nurture the young dancer’s physical, emotional, and social skills. Classwork develops the basic elements of creative movement, basic skills, as well as vocabulary, and music. Primary objectives are geared toward inspiration, self-expression, creativity, and imagination. Young children experience the love of learning through dance and music.

Benefits of Children’s Dance
Classes are focused on learning basic dance terminology and technique as well as life skills. During each class, dancers will improve upon their gross and fine motor skills, balance, alignment, and kinesthetic awareness. These classes will be one of their first steps into a classroom – they will experience the importance of sharing, waiting our turn, and working in groups!

Children’s Dance classes run full year (Sept-June), and end in an optional (but highly recommended) end-of-the-year recital in June.
