“First Steps” (ages 18 months - 5 yrs) programs are designed for little ones focusing on the basics as well as having fun in a dance happy way.  Your little one will be welcomed into the dance room and they'll soon be tippy toeing, twirling, skipping, jumping and tapping.  You'll hear some singing and see some special props to add to the excitement of class.  It's a magical time for little ones!


First Step Options ...

  • "New"  Dance With Me  ( 2 - 3 yrs):  We're happy to begin this new class where little ones can dance with the help of their parent or guardian.  It's similar to our Toddler Time Class, but the parents or guardian will help the entire season.  (This class will not be part of our yearly recital but will focus on dancing, locomotor skills, and learning to take a class with the comfort or a parent or guardian.)  Once your little dancer is mobile, the fun can begin for both parent and child.  You'll get to jump, gallop, pointe your toes and sing along to some fun and catchy tunes.  The class will introduce dance in a fun and happy way.


                                              Wednesdays from 3:45 to 4:30 PM 



  • Toddler Time (18 months - 3 yrs):  A class where smiles and giggles are a must and dance fundamentals are started. Jumping, skipping, galloping, kicking and toe pointing are some things you’ll see your little dancer achieving. Parents accompany their little one for the first 1/3 of the dance year to help them take the class. Once confidence is built, the little ones will take class on their own and eventually go on the big stage to show all their hard work! 


                                              Saturdays from 9:00 to 9:45 AM 




  • Preschool (3 - 4 yrs):  A class where little ones develop coordination, rhythm, flexibility and ballet fundamentals in a fun-loving way. Dancers will be kicking, jumping, turning, galloping, skipping and doing chasses across the floor. They will use scarves, hula hoops, batons and other inspiring props. You’ll hear clapping and see faces gleaming as your little one accomplishes their steps!


                                 
Class Choices:
                                              Tuesdays from 4:15 to 5:00 PM

  • Combo, Adv Combo (4 - 5 yrs):  A combination class consisting of ½ hour of ballet and ½ hour of tap for young dancers. This class teaches the basics in a dance happy way and is a stepping stone to a more disciplined and technical class. You’ll see pointed toes, straight knees, jumping, skipping, chasses, passes and hear flaps, shuffles, hops and ball changes. A joy for young dancers as their excitement shines.
