Introducing dance to young children is an honor and a responsibility we assume with joy, enthusiasm, and professionalism. We respect each child’s individuality and strive to make their experiences with dance positive and fun! We offer various levels based on age. Each class is designed to meet the individual needs of its students while taking into account their emotional maturity, attention span, and developmental stage.
For students ages 9-13 interested in a more intensive program that offers more training and more performance opportunities beyond the annual recital, visit the Dance Inn Youth Intensive page for more information.
