Class Descriptions

BALLET/TAP COMBO  (Ages 2 1/2 - 4)
Children enjoy learning basics and fundamentals in this ballet/ tap combination class. Dance helps children develop imagination, body sense, & ability to relate to music.

BALLET/TUMBLING COMBO  (Ages 3 - 4)                                                                                                                Students focus on basic fundamentals of ballet dancing. Ballet develops a solid foundation for your child's dance education. Tumbling builds motor skills, coordination skills, and assists with developing a good sense of body awareness.
