Youth Dance Program
Ages 2 to 6 years old
We adore our Legacy Littles!
Little girls and boys as young as 2 years old enjoy their first dance experience with us. They’re wide-eyed and eager to bounce to the beats and sway to fun songs. Their sweet tutu's with sparkles always make us smile.
Dance class can do more for your child than just help you to capture those adorable Instagram moments. When children experience the magic of dance class early in their developmental years, they build a base of fundamentals that carries them throughout life. Technically perfecting a child’s Plié or Pirouette is not our most important goal when they first start, instead we want them to gain a love of dance, develop strong bodies, confidence, and make life-long friends who share their passion for performing.
Dance provides a very natural method to learn expression and develop physical, emotional, and social skills. So it’s no surprise that starting children in dance at a young age can increase the benefits and skills learned.
