Ages 3-5 | Academy Class
Your child will twirl, spin and leap right through this lively class! Little Leapers is an excellent foundation for all styles of dance. Watch your child's self-confidence increase with every step! Your preschooler will explore basic ballet steps, motor skills (marching, galloping, skipping), shapes and rhythms while enriching his/her imagination and love of movement. The Little Leapers curriculum incorporates exciting props and adventure-filled movement stories that children love and remember for years to come.
If your child starts moving when the music comes on, this is the class for you!

TDE Parents Share: "Not only are you great dance teachers, but we feel you teach much more than that; including manners, morals, and how to be a good person, which are invaluable in today's society. We think it is wonderful that you have the Community Dance Ensemble through which you teach your students to give back to the community and others." - Nathan & Michelle Booth

Is your monkey always upside down? We're exited to introduce students to the AcroDance Preschool Program by Acrobatic Arts. It's a fun way to explore both dance and acrobatics at the foundation level. The class focuses on learning the acro positions, locomotor skills (galloping, leaping, jumping, hopping, etc), flexibility, balance, movement concepts, cooperation and social skills coupled with music, dance, imagination and fun.
