First Steps 

Ages 2-6

Your child’s first dance class should be a magical experience, and we can’t wait to make sure that it is. Young children naturally respond to music and movement and every child benefits from exposure to the arts. Watch your little one’s eyes light up as they walk out on to the dance floor for the first time. Nurturing teachers will guide your child as they learn body control, alignment, posture, and correct dance positioning. Attend in person or virtually...the choice is yours. Every class gets a virtual class link.
