Class Descriptions and age recommendations


Little Sprouts Creative Movement class - This class is for our youngest dancers!  We combine Creative Movement and Tumbling in a half hour session that meets weekly over the course of the dance year and performs in our annual dance recital in June.  A typical dance year runs 10 months (September - June).  This class will require a leotard, tights and ballet slippers for girls and t-shirts and sweatpants for boys.   


 Preschool (age 3-4)  &  Pre/K (age 4-5) Combo Class (Ballet/Tap/Tumble) -  This class is for Preschool age dancers!  Dancers sample a little ballet, tap and tumbling for a funfilled 45 minute class that meets weekly over the course of the dance year and performs in our annual dance recital in June.  This is a great opportunity for young children to make new friends!   


Kinderdance (Ballet/Tap/Tumble)- This class is for Kindergarden and Pre/K age dancers!  Dancers sample a little ballet, tap and tumbling for a funfilled 45 minute class that meets weekly over the course of the dance year and performs in our annual dance recital in June.  This is a great opportunity for young children to make new friends while learning dance basics.  


Elementary Combo -  ages 6-8   Dancers do a little ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and tumbling in a funfilled  one hour class that meets weekly over the course of the dance year and performs in our annual dance recital in June.  This is a perfect way for young dancers to sample a few different dance styles to discover which styles they enjoy the most!  


Hip Hop & Tumble-  ages 5-8    This class is for the young dancer who would rather not do ballet.  It's perfect for the child that just needs more action and has a hard time standing still.  Ballet classes in Elementary combo require more discipline because of barre work.   If you have a child who needs a fun outlet without too much of the more serious stuff then this is the class for them.

TDG Dance Team-  Dancers will be asked to join the team if and when ready through invitation.

Please look at the TDG Dance Team page for our criteria.


Dance classes are based on age and experience.  At The Dance Garden every dancer is important whether they are here for recreational classes or competitive.  

After school activities should be a place where children feel safe and can build confidence!

At The Dance Garden friendships are formed.  We provide more than just dance classes.  We do classes as well as birthday parties, camps, Master classes, competitive opportunities and even events to bring the studio together that are free like our Spring Fling with a visit from the Easter Bunny!
