The ability to introduce the love of something into a child’s life is a gift and a privilege. At the Elite Dance and Performing Arts Center, we take that responsibility seriously. Our goal is to not just teach children to dance; we want to teach them to love the art of dance.

A great dance education for preschoolers is a balance of both structured dance curriculum and fun that bring out the strengths in every dancer!

Our combo classes are designed for students 18 months through 5 years. Our classes are 45 minutes to 1 hour, which consists of 25-35 minutes of ballet, and the remainder of the class in tap, hip-hop, jazz or tumbling. The classes infuse proper dance etiquette and group interaction to keep students engaged and interested. All classes are progressive in age and level and are the beginning blocks of our 5 level curriculums.

This program was designed with serious thought and care to the curriculum. We introduce children to dance and music in an encouraging, fun, yet disciplined environment. Whether your child is shy or outgoing we can assure they will love our classes. Our instructors are specially trained to work with small children, and they are caring, sensitive, energetic and dependable.
