Dance lessons are a wonderful way for young children to be active and creative, and experience their first classroom environment. Our students are encouraged to become strong technical dancers while they explore and expand their creativity, and develop self-confidence.
Every lesson is focused on music, movement and fun! Our Pre-school Program teaches 3 and 4 year olds music and dance fundamentals through nursery rhymes, songs and games. Students enhance their coordination, locomotive and mental development. They explore movement possibilities and begin to develop body and space awareness through dance and play. Children not only have fun in this animated dance class, but also learn important skills that enable a logical and easy progression into building technique for future music and dance programs.
Adults and children alike will love building on a foundation of basic movements set to beautiful music as they grow their strength and abilities.
