Dance

First Position (Introduction to Dance)
2 & 3 year olds, with caregiver
Children will be introduced to basic stretches and dance steps in an imaginative, fun, and creative manner, all while developing important gross motor skills and learning to express themselves through creative movement. This class is designed to include a parent, grandparent or caregiver to help promote bonding and to provide a safe and secure learning environment for our youngest dancers.
