Kids Dance & Movement



Kids love to dance! We just add some structure.

The Old Town School's dance teachers help children of all ages experience the joy of dance and movement. In our dance classes, students will learn to use their own bodies to explore space, rhythm, music, and mood through dynamic activities, steps, and routines.

With movement development and physical coordination goals at each age level, Creative Movement classes leave plenty of time for games and improvisation, while more structured classes like Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, and Hip-Hop give students a foundation in technique, discipline, and performance. Classes in ethnic styles introduce children to unique dance forms from all over the world.

Both boys and girls will make new friends and have lots of fun in our encouraging and creative dance classes. Come out and dance with us!
