Plie' & Play - 2 -3 years

Plie' & play is an adult assisted class for our littlest aspiring dancers. It is a one hour class that is half creative movement and sing along songs, and half play based activities.  We dance, we color, we have snack breaks. Any caregiver is welcome to accompany the student. Adults will be dancing along with us as well

Combo Classes (Ballet/Tap/Jazz/Acro)

These classes offer an introduction into the specific dance styles paired with some creative movement exercises for our preschool and early elementary age group. Engaging music is used to get these little ones inspired to dance, all while introducing basic dance technique. They will learn how to follow direction and imitate movement, while developing gross motor skills in a positive and fun environment. The contrasting styles in these classes helps to keep their focus through the entire hour.  See specific dance style descriptions for more detailed information on what those include!
