Explanation of Class Curriculum

As well as dancing, students are engaged in ‘sing-alongs’ and usage of basic instruments. This is a great introductory class for youngsters to get accustomed to a class room setting, participating in group activities, sharing with other students, and following instructions. In the Combo Class, we add rudimentary tumbling/gymnastics.
