These 45 minute classes are an introduction to the world of movement for our tiniest dancers building coordination and motor skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. We encourage creativity, rhythm, balance and listening skills in a fun and easy environment. Moms, Dads, or Caretakers, get ready to move and play with your little ones. This class is “DROP IN”  allowing ultimate flexibility to accommodate your child's needs.


My Daughter has been going to Dance for Kids and has been dancing on the Brentwood competition dance team ( BAD). Dance for Kids is her second home. The teachers are not only professional dancers themselves , but are star choreographers. They work so hard and in just a few sessions you can see the dramatic changes in the way your child improves. My daughters have tried various dance studios and there is just no comparison. Once you go here, you are now part of a family. The girls are so supportive rather then competitive with one another. It is truly beautiful to see girls be so encouraging to each other. This type of support is encouraged by the teachers and the owners. They also provide many outside bonding activities for the girls to  attend to even further strengthen their friendship. I can not recommend this place enough. I'm so lucky to have found it, it changed my daughters life both emotionally and as a dancer.
