Preshcool Dance Classes

Watch you little one reach for the stars and discover the magic of dance

Ballet, Tap & Acro dance classes for preschool children age 3-4 years in Edinburgh & Kirkliston

About our preschool dance classes

Our preschool dance classes begin at just 3 years old. We teach using a combination of music and imagination taking little ones on magical adventures where movement to music forms the foundations of dance technique.

Students develop motor and loco-motor skills and learn the basic elements of movement, rhythm and musicality, as well as the beginnings of ballet, tap and acro skills. Dancing at a young age is great for physical development, self-expression, creativity, and imagination. It’s also great fun!

Tiny Dancers

1 – 3 years

Our youngest DN classes use fun stories, adventure, colourful props and upbeat music to encourage movement, body awareness and the beginnings of dance. Grown-ups are to join in and encourage their tiny dancer to shine.

Classes run under our sister brand DN Dance Babies. Click the link below to visit the DN Dance Babies website.

Little Ballet & Tap

3 & 4 years old

A ballet and tap combination class where your little one comes in without a grown up. A rewarding step for our youngest of stars!

We take our Little Dancers on a magical adventure, grasping their imaginations as we teach movements and patterns that form the basics of ballet and tap technique.

Little Acro

3 & 4 years old

One of our most popular dance styles. Dance Acro introduces acrobatic elements like tumbling into a dance.

At this level, children will focus on executing basic moves such forward roles and cartwheels, as well as building strong posture and musicality. It is recommended to attend Little Dancers alongside acro.
