Classes By Style
The best class to start for your one or two year old is Mini Movers. Mini Movers is specially designed to develop important developmental skills and to prepare your little one for the next level of class. This class starts with structured play allowing your child to explore activities while the instructor works with children one on one. The class then does group activities, including circle time with songs, a tumbling and dance portion, obstacle course and parachute activities. This class is a perfect start with the comfort of a parent/grandparent/"big buddy" in the room.
