Enjoy and explore the fundamentals of movement, music and rhythm in this developmentally appropriate class. Young dancers will be engaged through artistic body and brain connection through the joy of movement.

As we navigate our offerings during the pandemic we remain committed to equity and inclusiveness, especially for those who are marginalized, and understand that the pandemic will hit some in our community harder than others. Closures of non-profits have a profound effect on the financial health of artists and children in our program.

Our organization is a non-profit and our staff are hourly employees. Please consider a DONATION at this time to “keep the lights on” and supplement our staff.  Their contribution to the vitality of our lives is hard to quantify: beautiful movement and music sparks our imaginations, gives us meaning, helps us understand our world and gives us great personal satisfaction.
