New to Dance?

Starting dance lessons is exciting for children as well as parents. Dance is a wonderful activity for kids, capable of fostering a positive self image in both girls and boys. Dance lessons can teach a child self confidence, self discipline, poise and grace. A child introduced to dance at an early age will likely develop a love of the arts and a passion for rhythm and movement. Most importantly, dancing is lots of fun!

Deciding When to Start

Some people believe that a child should be enrolled in dance classes as soon as possible, sometimes as early as the second birthday. Toddlers and preschoolers usually begin with ballet or tap classes. Most DansConenction classes start at age 3! If your child is 3 or 4 years old, consider his or her emotional maturity and personality. If she is extremely shy, forcing your child into an uncomfortable position may discourage her from dancing altogether. However, if your child is ready, an early start will give her a tremendous boost.

Dressing for Dance Classes

Probably one of the most exciting things about starting dance lessons is shopping for leotards, tights and shoes. DansConnecton boutique stocks everything you need for your first dance class. Visit us before your class begins.

Choosing Dance Styles

Which dance classes is your child interested in? Many young girls have dreams of becoming a famous ballerina, so you might want to start with ballet. We offer combo classes for younger dancers, devoting half of the class time to ballet, the other half to either tap or jazz. You may be surprised to see your little one’s delight for tap shoes or passion for front rolls and headstands.

Having Fun!

Dancing is a joy, but it is also hard work. When your child is young, dance classes should be viewed as a fun experience, not as a chore. Watch your child during a class to make sure he or she is smiling and having fun. All classes can be watched on DansConnections live TVs situated in the lobby for everyone to view!
