Ballet Dance lessons are a great way for kids to start learn to dance. With long history of ballet dancing , many todays great dancers started this way. Learning to dance in a group is fun, and your child can make many new friends!
Starting Ballet dance at a young age is very rewarding in a long run. Benefits of ballet for children are numerous. First, it involves children in a constructive activity which they can enjoy for many years, even when they become adults. Second, dancing releases kid's extra energy in a productive way (would you prefer your child watch TV or do some dancing?). Third, dancing provides children with a community of friends, with whom they socialize and interact in a positive, respectful manner. Below, please find a schedule of children dance classes.
