Dancers Ages 2.5-7
Happy, Smart, Fun!
Our Petite, Combo Prep, and Rising Stars Programs offer classes in the styles of creative movement, ballet, tap, acro, hip-hop, lyrical, musical theater, and performance company for dancers ages 2.5 – 7 years.
Dancers in our Petite, Combo Prep, and Rising Stars programs 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 dancers, and continues forward into more technical classes with our combo prep dancers. E&E students can explore different styles of dance with our Rising Stars program that includes broadway, ballet, hip-hop, acro, and lyrical.
Thoughtful care is given to provide the utmost patience and encouragement to our youngest dancers.
