Mini’s Dance Classes

Let your inner dancer shine

Ballet, Tap & Modern | Dance Acro | Musical Theatre for Ages 5 & 6

About our classes

Dancing is a great way for kids to stay active, meet new friends, stimulate creativity and have fun. For kids aged 5 & 6 years we offer Dance Acro, Musical Theatre, as well as our signature combination dance class which includes Ballet, Tap and a little sprinkle of 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.
