  1. Hello,

    I have an active 4.5 year old that I think might be interested in taking dance classes. What class would you recommend for someone of her age to start with?

    • Hi,
      I usually recommend kids of that age begin with Tutu and Tumble and/or Tapping Toes. Please let me know if you have other questions. I would love to have you stop in to the studio next week (Aug 28-31) from 6-8 pm for open house! Or give me a call anytime at 896-1888.

    • Hi! I sent you an email to the email address you listed. Please call the studio at 896-1888 to discuss the details, but if she is a beginner, we have a hip hop class for her age group that I think would work well for her.
