FAMILY DANCE

(For ages 18 months to 3 years)

It’s never too early or too late to start dancing! When children experience dance and music within a joyful community, it creates a foundation for budding artists and beautiful human beings.

In this class, you’ll dance with your child in a fun mixed aged setting. Older children and adults serve as role models, while younger children follow in their own way.

Ms. Kris believes that artistry, like language, is best taught through immersion in the early years. She hopes her classes give parents inspiration to continue dancing and singing at home.

The instructor will evaluate when a student is ready to move into a school level if the student is interested in that goal.
