A quick registration video tutorial (it's a little dated, but should suffice for instructional purposes):
Our classes for toddlers and preschoolers are aimed at kids who are new to class settings. These introductory dance classes will help prepare them for further dance instruction, by honing listening skills, a sense of cooperation, and the ability to follow directions, while allowing them an outlet for their energy and creativity. All ages are approximate. If you have any questions, please contact us.
MY GROWN UP AND ME (1.5-2.5 yrs.)
A fun caregiver-child class, 30-minutes to accommodate short-attention spans and to give children a positive first class experience. Spend some quality time with your child as they discover what their bodies can do. Parent/caregiver participation eases little ones into class environments and lessens the tensions involved in separating. Adults will help the little ones with stretching, guiding them through the activities, and keeping them on task.

Session 1: September 21-October 26
Session 2: November 2-December14
DANCE IMAGINATION (3-4 yrs.)
A welcoming introduction to dance class. Parents may initially participate with shy kids as they warm up to the class environment. Dancers learn dance basics, such as plies, chasses, and skips, in the midst of games and imaginative play. We work on listening skills, music responsiveness, coordination, and furthering physical development. A leotard and ballet shoes are recommended, but nonrestrictive clothes and bare feet or nonskid socks are fine. The class will finish with low-pressure, in-studio performance.
