We believe the pre-school years in a child's development are critical years. Care is taken to not only teach correct skills but also to instill a love for dance and music. Our classes teach musicality and large motor and listening skills in addition to basic dance technique. We do this with a positive, fun, and creative approach to engage the dancers and help to foster a love for dance. Care is taken to place dancers in the appropriate level class, not only by age but also by their own development.
