Kinderdancing: is designed to help 4 & 5 year-olds transition from the 45 minute Tiny Dance class format to a 1 hour pre-ballet and tap combination class.  The introduction of dance terminology is used to further enhance the students learning experience and dance foundation.

Ballet: classes are progressive and teach technique, body alignment, terminology and musicality which can be used universally with all genres of dance.
