The Dance Company's outstanding pre-school program is based on a fun, well-organized atmosphere. Although our pre-schoolers learn many skills to help their physical development and coordination, our primary goal is to teach them how to learn. Using age-appropriate songs and dances, we build on the child’s natural love of music and movement, providing a nurturing, stimulating, yet structural classroom environment, specifically designed for children of this age. The pre-school classes consist of a happy blend of songs, dances, pre-ballet, tap and tumbling. The following classes are available:
|Mommy and Me - Ages 2-3
On My Own - Age 3
Dance Magic - Age 3 1/2 - 4 1/2
Princess Dance - Ages 3-6
Ballet/Tap Combination - Ages 4 1/2 - 5 1/2
Storybook Ballet Theatre - Ages 3 1/2 - 6
Fancy Nancy - Ages 3 - 6
