There’s so much in class to benefit their rapidly growing bodies and minds:

  • Develop social skills like taking turns and team-work
  • Develop musical skills like rhythm and tempo
  • Develop finer control of their body
  • Allow for creative expression
  • Foster a love for dancing that will last a lifetime
  • And, of course, have lots of fun learning to dance!

* Students must be potty-trained

What is Ballet?

The epitome of grace and beauty. One of the oldest and richest dance forms around.

What is Tap?

An enduring American tradition. Clap your hands. Stomp your feet. Learn to feel the beat.

What is Tumbling?

In addition to Tap and Ballet, four year olds will spend an extra 15 minutes each week on coordination, strength, and fun! We’ll cover rolls, bridges, hand-stands, and more.

Dress the part

  • Black or pastel leotard.
  • Pink tights or white socks.
  • Pink ballet shoes with elastic on top.
  • Black tap shoes

On With the Show!

The word RECITAL doesn’t really do it justice– it’s really more of a Dance Extravaganza!

This exciting experience gives students an opportunity to display their accomplishments and a purpose to perfect their work.

Things you’ll love as a parent:

  • Instead of one great big 4+ hour recital, we actually have several smaller fun-size recitals to keep each one short and sweet
  • Recital Costumes are provided at no additional cost

If you removed all the arts in the lives of our children…there is no way that adding more mathematics, increasing more reading programs, requiring more science, mandating more tests, or scheduling more computer courses could replace what they would have lost.
