Toddler & Pre-School

At Dance Connection children 5 and under receive a strong foundation on which they can build. Students learn basic motor skills as they learn new dance movements, gaining improved balance, coordination and confidence in the process. Through discipline and structure, our positive instructors help the students learn socialization skills along with the ability to focus in a classroom environment. These fun and energetic programs will help students discover a class subject that most interests them, which will enable parents to better select classes that concentrate on a single style of dance as children get a little older.

Recognizing how quickly children develop during these early stages, Dance Connection offers 3 different classes: Lil' Steppers (LS), Next Step (NS) and Combo (C).

Class Information

Lil' Steppers students are required to wear comfortable exercise clothing and sneakers that are reserved for classroom use only. Some Lil' Steppers students wear a leotard and tights with pink Ballet slippers, but it is not required. Next Step and Combo students are required to wear a leotard and tights, as well as black mary jane style Tap shoes and pink Ballet slippers. Hair should be pulled back off of the face (i.e. pony tail). No jewelry. No gum.
