The main goal of dance lessons at this age is to provoke a child’s interest in dance, help develop concentration and ability to follow instructions, and to provide a venue for socializing with other children.
Each lesson lasts 50-55 minutes, in small groups of no more than 15 children, during which children learn basic dance moves and perform exercises to improve the sense of rhythm, muscle strength and coordination, as well as engage in a variety of group game activities.
By the end of the first year your child will:
Learn to perform 8-10 dance compositions,
Be familiar with the basic types of steps, jumps and transitions,
Learn to follow the instruction and repeat the movements as shown.
We strongly recommend to arrive at least 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the class, so that your child would have enough time to adapt.
Please note that some of the lessons are delivered in Russian. The language of instruction is indicated in the last column of the schedule table below.
Full Class Schedule with detailed pricing is available here.

For mid-year (late) registrations, missed classes are carried over to the last term of the school year.
