BEGINNING DIVISION
at our Thanksgiving Point Campus

ABOUT | The Beginning Division is designed for our youngest students ages three to six years old. Classes are offered by age and are carefully developed in accordance with a child’s physical and cognitive abilities. Children are placed in a nurturing environment and parents are invited to watch class during scheduled parent watch weeks. Formal auditions are not required for these levels.

BEGINNING A | Ages 3-4

Beginning A is an interactive class where children and can discover the joy of movement. We believe a child’s (and parent’s) first experience with dance should make a positive and lasting impression. Students have fun in a safe, creative and nurturing environment.  Students must be potty trained, no exceptions.
