Street Dance Sprouts is a welcoming, inclusive, upbeat dance class for children aged 5-7! Children will learn hip hop dance and gain confidence in this class! Children of all skill levels are welcome, and they will leave class feeling empowered, motivated, and eager to learn more! We will learn a new routine every two weeks, giving us two pieces of choreography to focus on each month. Each month, we will explore and learn more about a different theme, such as old school hip hop or female hip hop icons! This class is all about improving your dance skills in a safe and encouraging environment, in order to bring together learning while also having fun! As teachers, we will create an environment in which students feel safe to take risks, knowing that we will always have their backs and be supporting them! So put on your dancing shoes, bring your high energy, and prepare to have a BLAST!
During class you are welcome to explore the academy, the grand gallery by a cozy wood stove or a little nook to catch up on a good book or some emails. Complimentary wifi is available.
