While the children’s bodies practice balance, strength, and coordination, their minds work on creativity, musical awareness, and memory.

 

In addition to dancing, children will learn ballet stories and participate in dance-centric crafts. They will also prepare a short performance for all of their families to enjoy at the end of the week at 11:45.
