At D’Valda & Sirico, anyone can learn to dance

For our youngest students’ first steps into the dance world, we offer specialized, developmentally appropriate programs: Mom & Me, Fantasy Ballet, Tiny Tappers and Jr. Hip Hoppers. During each fun filled 15-week session, dance terminology, improvisation and character work are introduced through magical fairy tales and classic children’s stories. Each small group experiences a series of creative activities that are designed to encourage imagination, gross and fine motor skills, rhythm, musicality and spacial awareness.

Props, instruments and costumes are often used to enhance the fundamental instruction. They have their own special performance at the conclusion of each session in a more relaxed environment, designed to be a stress free, and a happy experience for the young performer and family.

Our Approach to Dance Classes for Toddlers

Get Started

Dance Lessons Should Be Fun!

We understand that the initial step into the world of dance for your 1-3-year-olds can be a magical experience, but it’s the fun and joy they find in our classes that keeps them eager to return. Our goal is for every tiny dancer to absolutely ADORE their dance lessons, embarking on an early journey of movement and fun. We put the “fun” into the very basics of dancing!

Our caring team expertly combines age-appropriate dance education with a playful, child-centered approach. This gives our youngest dancers the chance to discover the joy of dance in a nurturing environment. Whether it’s their first dance class or they’re continuing their tiny steps in dance, our instructors are ready to guide them gently towards a love of movement, ensuring each experience is filled with fun and smiles.

We Emphasize Healthy Technique

Healthy technique is critical to lifelong enjoyment of the dance. Our first priority is teaching strong fundamentals, including safe stretching, technique, vocabulary, and choreography. We believe that thoughtful instruction is essential to dance development and safeguards students from injury.

Once the fundamentals are in place, you can design your journey. Our qualified teachers will assist you in developing your dance and exploring different styles and programs. Learn with us as we infuse elements of performance throughout the year along with year-end recitals into our well-rounded approach to fostering dance excellence.
