Beginning with the Dancing Ducklings (Mommy & Me class) and continuing with the Friendly Finches, Dazzling Firedbirds, & Beautiful Bluebirds, our fun and inspired pre-ballet classes are a perfect way to introduce your little one to the joys of dance. Our Come Soar program for dancers ages 2-6 use curriculum based on the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, along with SCD’s belief that imagination is key in dance! Using poems, stories, creative props and music these classes are a wonderful introduction for children to the structured and expressive world of dance.
