18 months-2 year old Mommy & Me
This is a 45 minute teacher facilitated mommy lead class which prepares the student for the independent 2-3 year old tap, ballet, and tumbling class. The first section of the class will be for mommy assisted "free play" and obstacle course which will work on the tumbling skills and the second section of class will focus on creative movement which concentrates on stretching, ballet, and tap. The use of music, props, and monthly themes keep the class high energy and engaging.
