Boys and Girls

Ages 3 to 5 Years

This program engages kids in important stages of Social Emotional Athletic Development. More specifically, dance experiences in early childhood can accelerate brain development. Children think with their bodies well before they think with their words. When movement matches music, it helps our body + mind work together, learn sounds + meanings of words, strengthen memory skills, and experience joy. In this program, children will play with movement, navigate their feelings, practice mindfulness, and move with purpose. Built through a child development lens, each class will provide a foundation in dance technique and follow a progressive skill growth path to help develop a love of dance! ​
