Art in Motion Class
Children ages 3–5 years old can MOVE and GROOVE in a fun-filled class that provides an opportunity to interact with other children. This class will promote self-confidence and enhance self-esteem while inspiring a true love of dance. Children will explore movement patterns and individual expression in a supportive, disciplined and social environment. Using wide variety of music, dancers begin to learn rhythm and patterns to develop both movement quality and imagination.
We believe in maintaining a social environment coupled with positive reinforcement and discipline, which is necessary for the progress and growth of any student.
