Baby Class (18 months – 2 ½ year old parental presence)

Carefully constructed class to train very young students the basic principals of dance based on creative dance and classical ballet but, mostly to have fun! Working in a positive enviroment along with other students of similar age and the safety of parental presence, our youngest students get inspired by the music to dance. The use of props like, tedy bears, ribbons, musical instruments, shapes and many more, help the students of this very sensitive age to use their imagination, express themselves, create their own movents and most importantly enjoy their dance. This class builds a solid base for the future and is suggested if you want to share an activity with your child.
