FIRST STEPS

DANCE PROGRAM (ages 3-7) 

Inspiring Creativity One Step At A Time 

 In a caring, safe, and family-friendly environment, the seeds of future artists are planted. Teachers and staff nurture each student so they bloom into artists with us. With years of experience working with young children, our teachers love to share the joy of dance through ballet,  jazz, hip-hop and creative dance and each level is a progressive program based on the child’s physical, social, cognitive, and emotional development.
