Age 18mo – 6yrs | The fun begins with the First Step! Whether destined for the stage or boardroom, in our dance classes we will give your child the tools they need to succeed!

Our purpose is to provide the highest-quality preschool education in a secure, nurturing, and stimulating environment.  We meet these goals with our age-appropriate curriculum and ongoing communication with parents.

The first few weeks of classes serve as an introductory phase to help students become comfortable with the overall dance experience, the classroom, their teacher and their classmates.

Right from the beginning we focus on your child’s coordination, listening skills, musical awareness, and developing imagination. We accomplish this through age-appropriate music and song, simple stretching exercises, ballet and tumbling basics and games in an environment of creativity. Some preschool students will incorporate simple tap-dance movement at 5. Preschool dance is about helping children learn to tap into their imaginations and express themselves creatively, not necessarily about learning steps (although they do get introduced to some basic steps). So don’t be disappointed if your child doesn’t pirouette around the house or look like a budding ballerina right away.

Recital & Pictures

All ‘First Steps’ students in our Full Year Program get to perform one dance routine in our annual recital at the Jubilee Auditorium. Students require a costume and are expected to attend the recital dress rehearsal. There is a charge of $5/Family for dress rehearsal which will be billed April 1st. For information about costume costs please refer to our Registration & Payment policies.

Group and single pictures will be taken in their costumes end of the year during picture week.

Please note that dress rehearsal, recital and pictures are mandatory dates for all students. Dates and times are posted on our website as soon as available.
