Dance With Me

This is a great class for our 1.5-3-year-olds. We use music they know and love while learning beginner dance moves with a ballet or jazz foundation with a parent or guardian. We learn all about warming up, stretching, nursery rhymes, role-playing and obstacle courses to foster a love for dance and enhance gross motor skills.

Helpful hints for our Dance With Me class: The parent can assist with all dance moves, even carrying the dancer if she or he wants extra cuddles, or the dancer may participate more independently, dancing next to their parent. Occasionally dancers can get upset because they are overwhelmed. It happens to the best of us! If this occurs, it’s best to leave the room, calm down your dancer and return when he or she is feeling better.
