City Kids Dance programs teach the young dance student the basic elements of movement, dance, the concept of space and how we relate to it both as an individual and as a member of a group.
Parent and Toddler Classes
Afterschool/drop off classes
Ages 3 and up
Our program offers children an opportunity to begin to learn basic classroom behavior such as taking turns, following another dancer, leading the way, waiting patiently, working together with others and having a positive attitude. It is a fact that training young children in the concepts of movement sequencing, patterning and spatial relationships provides a strong foundation for later development of reading, mathematics and other educational skills. All of CKD programs work actively in these areas. Most importantly, children learn a love and respect for dance which will stay with them their entire lives.
All students must enroll in a full or pro-rated session. We do not offer drop-ins unless otherwise noted. Children may make up missed classes at any age-appropriate class. Please e-mail ahead of time so we can let the teacher know.
