tutu tiny (ages 2-4)
This class is the perfect starting point for our youngest dancers. We use movement in a positive way to introduce dance concepts such as space, time, rhythm and balance, while encouraging the child’s creativity and personal expression. Children learn the structure of dance class as well: about expressing their feelings through movement, following directions and cooperating with others.
TuTu Tiny is offered in two segments: Level 1 (a 30-minute class for 3 year-olds and 4 year-olds who are new to dance) and Level 2 (a 45-minute class for 4 year-olds who have successfully participated in Level 1).
