mommy & me

Our Mommy & Me class is a ballet-based dance class for ages 2 and 3. Your little dancer will learn the basics of dance with you right by their side. It’s a great way to introduce your child to a classroom structure by encouraging discipline and essential listening skills. Every class involves costumes and royal themes that help understand technique. And, of course, plenty of time to twirl across the dance floor with Mom or Dad.

Our dancers need to bring:
Attire: Leotard (any color) & ballet tights (pink)
Shoes: Leather-sole ballet shoes (pink)
Hair: Ballet bun (or otherwise pulled back)
Parents: Comfortable clothing (socks or bare feet)

Princess ballet

Our Princess Ballet program for ages 3-5 strives to educate our students with traditional techniques, build confidence, and encourage imagination. We provide a quality dance education through individual attention to nurture a love of dance, imbued with imagery and creativity that encourages dancers to think in their own, unique way. After the hard work is done, our dancers are rewarded with dress up and special choreography.

This class lets our students dance without their parent in the class. It is designed for dancers with experience in a structured classroom who are ready to be on their own in class. We evaluate each new Princess Ballet student individually, and may recommend beginning with at least one Mommy & Me class. It is up to the discretion of our instructors as to which class will let your child have the best experience.
