“Yesterday I had the privilege of coming to Parent Observation Night at the Creative Dance class my son attends .  I was so impressed with the teacher! She was very sweet and patient, and was teaching the students some great skills involving movement, listening and following directions.  My son is always so joyful when he comes out of dance class, and I’m really glad I got to see why.” -Briana S.

Creative Dance explores music, the ancestor movements from which all dance developed, imagination and coordination. Classes are $45/month.

Tips for getting your preschooler ready

Our instructors truly love what they do, and want your child to have a positive experience. Below we have listed some guidelines to help make coming to dance class the best it can be for your preschooler:

  • Please arrive for class a few minutes early to give your dancer time to prepare for class. This includes using the restroom, taking a drink of water, putting on shoes (please tuck ties into ballet shoes, or tie them in a knot and cut them off!).  Giving your dancer time to gear up for class makes for a better overall class experience.
  • Dancers should dress appropriately for dance—in the preschool program pretty much anything goes! Pink leather ballet shoes for girls and black leather ballet shoes, T-shirts, short or sweats for boys.  Tutu’s, skirts, polka dot tights, superhero costumes, whatever gets your dancer in the mood to dance is great with us! If hair could be out of the dancers face that would be wonderful.
  • We have windows so you can watch your dancer in class at all times. Please know that we are wanting to meet your child where they are at. Some children enthusiastically bound into the studio, while others take a little longer to warm up. We will work with you and your child to make sure your child is comfortable in class.
