What to expect
Our Preschool programs are designed to create a fun and exciting environment for your young dancer. We offer classes for dancers ages 2-5, from child-companion classes, Creative Movement, and Pre Genre classes. These classes are designed to introduce tiny dancers to being in a classroom setting, discovering their love for dance and music, and developing basic technique/terminology in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
2nd Session: January 13th-March 30th
Wednesday 4:15-5:00 PM
Wednesday 5:00-5:45 PM
Move With Me (ages 2/3)
Young dancers and their companions develop motor skills, balance, rhythm, coordination and more through interactive music and games! This weekly 45 minute class is a great way for you and your child to find and nurture your inner dancer.
Mini Movers I (ages 2.5/3)
Dancers learn independence as they enter the studio confidently on their own! In Mini Movers I, dancers continue to strengthen their motor skills, balance, rhythm, and coordination while also exploring creativity and body awareness. These dancers will also learn basic dance movement and vocabulary to prepare them for genre-oriented classes.
Mini Movers II (ages 3/4)
Mini Moves II is our second level of Creative Movement classes. Dancers continue to refine motor skills, balance, rhythm and coordination as well as expand their dance movement and terminology vocabulary.
Pre Genre Classes (ages 4/5)
Our Pre Ballet, Pre Jazz and Pre Hip-Hop classes are designed to get young dancers ready for our full hour long recreational level classes. In these classes they will learn basic, fundamental elements, learn short combinations of choreography, while still maintaining a fun, friendly, and playful environment. This is a great transition from Creative Movement to exploring a style of dance they love!
Showstoppers! Recital Class (ages 4/5)
Our youngest performers! Dancers in the Showstoppers class will learn a multi genre routine to be performed in our annual recital in May. This class focuses on strengthening memorization and retention skills, as well as the joy of performing! This class can be taken alongside any of our Pre Genre class or on it’s own.
Sign up for our Preschool Move with Me from 11:00-11:30 and/or Mini Movers 11:30-12:00. This is a great way for you and your dancer to meet their teacher and see what class will be like in the fall. Space is limited.

Many children that are turning 5 transition into our regular yearly program. We would be happy to talk to you about appropriate placement for your child!
If your dancer is 4-5 years old and has taken a particular interest in dance through our pre-school program, we offer a Bridge Program specifically designed as a low-commitment introduction/preparation for our Company. This allows our tiniest dancers to explore dance further through a few extra-personalized classes each week. Click here to learn more!
