We offer two levels of classes for kids.
For the youngest kids (ages 2 to around 6), we offer the “Itty-Bitty” and “Wiggle-Worms” classes. These classes introduce them to dance, working on their coordination, teaching them to learn in groups and developing basic musicality. We keep them entertained and busy, so these classes are a great and healthy way to burn off some energy while learning.
For our older kids (from around 6 to 12), we start teaching in a more structured way, but still keep them up and moving. We teach the fundamentals of technique, basics of safety and self-care and build their skills into dance routines. These routines make the technique learning fun, rather than repetitive, and give each the student the chance to show off what they’re learning.
We really like to have a short evaluation with our new kids and their parents so that we can help determine if they are ready for the older classes. We want to make sure that every student gets as much as they can from our classes.
Dance as physical education
We know that staying active is essential to our health. We believed this before the Coronavirus, and partnered with Aspire Middle School in their “Partners In Education” program to offer their students a new way to stay active and healthy.
Miss Lexi, our Director and Miss Jul, our Hip-Hop teacher were both homeschooled through high school. They and their parents learned early on that dance is a great way for homeschoolers to meet their requirements for physical education. As a studio, we would be thrilled to work with homeschoolers as families or as a co-op to help them formulate a physical education program that meets their requirements. Dance really helped Lexi, Jul and their parents meet educational standards, and we’d love for it to do the same for other families.
