​​Mommy and Me (18 months-3 years)

A 30 minute Creative Movement Program designed to impart the physical, emotional, and cognitive development of our youngest dancers. Students will be exposed to a fun, constructive and nurturing classroom experience exposing them to classroom etiquette, musical awareness, as well as exploring self-awareness, creative expression and imagination. Rhythm, creative movement and the use of props are introduced.  Any adult care giver is welcome...not just Mommy! 
To uphold the integrity of our dance education, Mommy & Me classes require 1 adult per dancer.  If you have multiple children, another adult must attend per child. Can be dad, auntie, uncle, grandma, etc.!  No other adults or siblings allowed in dance room.​

Preschool (3-5 years old)

Emphasis is on developing gross motor skills, muscle control, balance and spatial awareness, as well as listening and leadership skills. Rhythmical patterns and props are used to create a fun, moving environment! Students must be potty trained in order to enroll. 

Primary (5-7 years old)

Yoga for Dancers, Ages 11-17
Yoga connects the mind and body and can teach dancers how to listen to and respect their bodies and physical needs.  In this class, students move through sequences of Yoga postures designed specifically for dancers.

​Growing up as a dancer and continuing my passion for movement through Yoga as an adult, I am excited to share lessons of the benefits of Yoga for dancers!  Yoga connects the mind and body and can teach dancers how to listen to and respect their bodies and physical needs. Some benefits of Yoga for dancers:
  • Increase positive body awareness and boost confidence
  • Gain strength, flexibility and balance
  • Coping with performance anxiety and stress
  • Breath control, linking breath to movement
  • Health benefits, improve circulation, coordination, reaction time, memory, healthier heart and lungs
  • Calm the mind, encourages relaxation, slow breath and focus on the present moment
