this is a great time to support your child's dance endeavors and for you to have a little fun in your day as well.  

These dance classes are designed to open an individual's minds to the vast world of dance. Our classes will help children develop a stronger sense of confidence through the study of music, dance, and movement.  
We will explore different dance styles and allow the children opportunities for self-expression and experimentation with movement.

We will start with jazz movement exploration in the early weeks of the class.
Children will have an opportunity to also share their ideas about dance as we learn about techniques such as call and response, improvisation, lead and follow, rhythm exercises, and more.

There is no set class attire, however, we do encourage children to wear lightweight, easy to move in garments.  We will be dancing mostly in socks or soft shoes such as ballet slippers or jazz shoes.  You do not need to buy special clothing or shoes for our regular classes.
