This class is designed for our toddler students. Song and dance provide our tiny aspiring dancers with development in coordination, listening skills and musicality while engaging their imagination. Sometimes our tiniest of students aren’t ready for a class that that they will attend on their own. This class is designed for those students as well and their parents who want to experience the love of dance with their children. In this class, dancers along with Mommy and/or Daddy attend class together to engage in sing-song and dance with the use of music and props to blossom imaginations. We work with mommy and daddy to make students comfortable to eventually
be able to take class on their own.
