Happy, Smart, Fun!
Our Petite Program offers classes in the styles of creative movement, ballet, tap, tumbling, hip-hop, and musical theater for dancers ages 2.5 – 5.5 years.
Dancers in our Petite Program gain valuable classroom skills including taking turns, listening, class structure, and independence. Our progressive curriculum works gross motor skills and body control with our Petite 1s, and continues forward into basic ballet terminology, beginning tap skills, and strength-building tumbling with our Petite 2s and 3s. Dancers can explore different styles of dance with our Hip-Hop Flip-Flop and Broadway Babies options.
Thoughtful care is given to provide the utmost patience and encouragement to our youngest dancers.
E&E Dance Company Petite Program dancers are happy and confident!
