Children’s Program

Nurturing the Creative Spirit Within
Nurturing the Creative Spirit Within

Creative Movement Classes (Ages 3+)

ABOUT |  Don’t miss the opportunity to let your child experience the world of dance in a fun and creative way! Whether your child has taken classes at our location before or not, he or she will love the opportunity to be part of our Children’s Dance Program brought from the Joffrey Ballet of New York / Chicago. Our program is designed to increase your child’s self-esteem in terms of spatial awareness and body movement. Research indicates that dance can help improve a child’s confidence level and help promote a healthy body image!

Training within this program prepares young dancers’ muscles and develops the coordination necessary for beginning ballet.

Dancers do a non-weight bearing floor barre, followed by creative movement with an emphasis on developing musical and motor skills. The excited, young dancers are motivated to dance and will be well-prepared for entry into the Pre-Ballet or Ballet I class. This also prepares a young dancer for technique classes in Jazz at the age of 8.

PLACEMENT | These classes are age based, and a formal placement evaluation class is not required.

REGISTER |  Please register by completing the registration form or contacting the studio.
