Tiny Talents Program

Ages 2-5

Our Tiny Dancers meet on location at your child’s school for a weekly 30-minute Ballet class that focuses on the foundational aspects of movement.

  • Focus includes classical Ballet positions and arms, rhythm and musicality, and spatial awareness, as well as the foundational aspects of sound, coordination, and rhythm.
  • In this class we develop cognitive and motor skills through learning the locations of our major body parts and practicing following instructions, all while learning basic dance steps, and having fun!
