Our Dance Classes
Toddler Dance classes
Is your little one ready to take their first dance steps? This is where it all begins! Skills are introduced in their most basic form, which helps build a solid foundation for any future dance study. Concentration is on developmental skills needed to execute primary dance steps. These classes are gently structured for our younger students, focusing mainly on building gross and fine motor skills, coordination, while encouraging creativity, imagination and self-confidence. At GRDA we want to make sure all our Tiny Tots receive the benefits of dance in a fun, supported environment.
