Over 8? It's not too late!
Does your child over the age of 8 love dance?
We love late starters!
Many kids discover they may have a passion for dance a little later in childhood. Unfortunately, there is a common misconception that kids must begin dancing when they are 5 years or younger in order to really succeed in dance.
Great news! Children age 8 – 13 can easily begin dance training and have great success. Our studio has seen many children start “late”, and we LOVE supporting them as they work hard to catch up with their peers and see great success in their dance education.
Our LD Division classes for students that are interested in learning to dance without the pressures of festival/competition performances or examinations in dance.
We aim to make these classes fun and relaxed, while also educating dancers in the foundations of dance to ensure safe practice and provide a solid base from which to move into our Performance Stream, if desired.
