Mini Stars classes are for children aged 2 & 3 and a parent. This class is an opportunity to introduce your child to dance and participate with them. You will experience the joy of dancing with your child while they are being introduced to the basics of dance technique, learning about music and rhythm, classroom etiquette, and respect for their classmates. 

Saturdays 10:00 am



Currently our most popular preschool class, this introduction to ballet and jazz is a creative movement exploration.  Kids practise basic movement skills to classical and lyrical style music along with songs that are just fun for them.  For the curious and focused child ages 3 - 4.

Saturdays 10:00 am or 12:00 pm



If you have an energetic child that loves to move and groove, this new class is for them!  A foundation of basic movement skills are explored in an energetic environment with age appropriate music so that kids get to do the cool moves in a way parents are sure to approve! For the excited and active child ages 3 - 4.
