Dancers and Dreamers - Balance Dance Studios | Dance Classes | Adults | Kids

Welcome to our Dancers and Dreams program! This program is designed expressly for imaginative 2-5 year old princesses, pirates, super heroes, movie stars, and fairies. Here dreams are realized as focus, practice and imagination result in confidence and achievement. Each class encourages students to champion their inherent talents, identify who they believe they can be, and create a memorable performance of which they can be proud of.

Which Level should my dancer attend

Each level takes a semester to complete and when the class graduates, the level advances. There is no need to change the class time or the date upon graduation, for example, if your dancer enrolls in August into the Monday 4pm Purple level, in January the class will remain at the same time and day, they will just start the Blue shoe curriculum in January.

When choosing a class, first choose a level that most describes your dancer’s experience, then look for the appropriate age.

Level Experience
Purple Shoes No Dance Experience
Blue Shoes At Least 6 months experience
Red Shoes At least one year experience
Pink Shoes At least one year experience
Prima Ballerina For all tiny dancers 5-6yrs transitioning into Ballet Level 1

Your tiny dancer will twirl, tiptoe, and leap into fun-filled dance classes that explore the fundamentals of three different dance genres. Each class, your dancer will learn a new skill and track their progress with their very own dance passport. Once they have completed the curriculum they will receive a personalized certificate and graduate to the next colorful level!
