Pre-school Program:  Ages 2-5


We are proud of our strong Pre-School program! We have developed our own curriculum and class structure, and know that no matter how young....dancers are here to learn to DANCE. Our youngest dancers even learn proper terminology.


During the school year, our Pre-School classes have a different theme each month (example: Animals, Disney Princesses, etc.). Every child learns and progresses differently - ask us for our professional advice for your tiny dancer - we are here to guide you on your dance journey!

NEW FOR SUMMER 2022 - TUMBLE TOTS! Tumble Tots is for 3-5 year olds, and can be taken alone or as a great add on to Pre-Ballet/Tap or Tot Hip Hop.


Ages 2-3: Tiny Dreamers

A great way to introduce little ones to the art of dance.  We'll use games and songs to teach rhythm, movement, and introduce basic ballet. This is a great way to develop basic motor skills, as well as coordination and balance. Ballet shoes required.

Ages 3-5: Tot Hip Hop

Our Hip Hop for tots uses clean and age appropriate music/movement! Jazz shoes are OK to wear in class, but Hip Hop dance sneakers are required for recital.

Ages 3-5: Pre-Ballet/Tap

Basic ballet and/or tap skills, terminology, rhythm, and coordination are taught, practiced, and developed through creative movement, music. ​Our pre-ballet and/or pre-ballet/tap classes also develop concentration and learning how to follow instructions. Ballet shoes and Tap shoes required.

Ages 3-5: Tumble Tots
