Summer Session: June 18-August 11 (8 weeks)
BUDDY AND ME BALLET (ages 18mos-3): The class introduces little ones to the dance studio, moving along to music and basic ballet steps. This class can be attended with a parent or guardian, or if you’d prefer to sit out we can “buddy” you up with one of our big girl ballerinas! Little ones can get to know a buddy as they take class with the assistance of our older dancers.
