Dancing for Kids

Why Dance Class?

It’s not too difficult to tell if a child likes to dance. You’ll see them wiggling and swaying to TV theme songs as toddlers. They’ll tap their toes to pop songs on TV — or go into full-out routines in the living room. In fact, it’s probably true to say that most kids will shake their groove thing when they’re little. The question is, “Are dance classes the logical next step?” If you’re looking for an after-school activity for your child, dance offers plenty of benefits. According to the London-based Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), this activity is perfect for kids who aren’t necessarily drawn to other team sports, but it’s also perfectly wonderful for those who seem to be good at all things athletic.

We are all about safety!

How we take it seriously.

We designed our studio from the ground up with student safety in mind. There is a lot that goes into keeping our dance students safe. The type of flooring, lighting, ventilation and ceiling height are important factors. But we go above and beyond, each family will receive a key for card access, our security cameras in the classroom and doorways help us keep a visual on student safety. Even the volume of music is regulated to protect t he hearing of the little ones. Lastly, each and every person who may come in contract with a student is required to go through an extensive background check.
