Dance Classes

Let your inner dancer shine

About our classes

Dancing is a great way for kids to stay active, meet new friends, stimulate creativity and have fun. For kids between the ages of 5-8 years we offer Dance Acro, as well as our two signature combination classes which include Ballet, Tap and Modern Dance in a single class.

Focus is on developing elementary skills in technique, vocabulary and choreography across the three dance genres. Students benefit from the different skills picked up in each style and the variety is perfect for the shorter attention span of children in this age group.

Mini Dancers

Ballet, Tap & Modern

For students aged 5 & 6 years old. Mini Dancers combines ballet and tap develops the beginnings of modern theatre dance into a 60-minute class.

Our combination classes are great for shorter attention spans at this young age and they love the variety and challenge of the different dance genres.
