Begin with DANCE DISCOVERY - Sign up for Free trial CLASS

Children ages 3 through Kindergarten explore the world of classical ballet or jazz in creative classes. This program provides students with a solid foundation when entering the leveled classes.

Discovery improves mental, social and communication skills, as well as overall coordination, strength and agility through targeted age-appropriate exercises.

Students begin with creative floor stretches, then learn basic ballet or jazz steps with terminology and loco-motor steps across the floor. Classes include a tap segment for basic rhythm coordination skills.

We celebrate their progress with the end of the year studio costumed recital.

Research shows that kids who are actively involved in music:

  • do better in reading and math when they start school
  • are better able to focus and control their bodies
  • play better with others and have higher self-esteem.

Combining music and movement

  • helps preschoolers learn self control,
  • develop gross motor skills, and
  • work on memory.

Kids also learn:

  • patterns,
  • listening skills and much more.

Most importantly it’s FUN!

  • Dance Insights

    "Passe is an action not a position." - Mr. Robert   Robert shares a wealth of information on a variety of topics, especially ballet.  In any class you take from him you are likely to get equal parts of history, pedagogy and current trends while training.  "Pedagogy" is the art and science of education.  So there you are, you just learned something by reading this blog post.

  • It's Never Too Late

    It’s never too late to join a dance class. For students interested in joining our Discovery and Pre-Professional Classes, we are working on recital. Because we focus on training versus competition or performance in our classes, we welcome students whether they participate in recital or not.
