Children’s Division

Creativity, Confidence and Capacity Through Dance

The Children’s Division Program is designed to inspire a life-long love of dance while building creativity, confidence and capacity in students ages 2-7. Through age-appropriate curriculum, students develop coordination, muscle strength, gross motor skills, musicality, listening skills and spatial awareness. Imagination and individual artistic expression are key components as students explore their creative potential. The fundamentals of classical ballet are gradually introduced with each level building upon the next, setting students up for success as they graduate into the Main Division.
