Children’s Program – In-Person

Ages 3-8 years
No experience required
The goal of the Children’s Program is to introduce the students to dance and ballet through movement, music, games, props, and fun. Dancers learn in an organized group setting while exploring the use of their imagination. Each lesson is a positive experience aimed to instill a sense of self-confidence and self-worth. Students will progress through essential components throughout the year including gross motor skills, spatial awareness, musicality, and body awareness.
