Rhythm Kids Level 1 – 3  (3-5 yrs old)

FULL YEAR CLASSES

Dance Connection’s studio philosophy is to teach young dancers to have fun and dance to their full potential. Our instructors are experienced and have many years of teaching young children. Your dancers will love their class!

We welcome your inquiries at any time if you have questions.

Dancers will perform in the Winter Showcase at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre in December and our Year End Recital in May. As we encourage Community Spirit in our studio, they will also perform at a local Senior Care facility.

Our classes this year are smaller as our dancers are dancing in their own marked spaces on the floor. We are excited to be dancing on our own dance islands (or maybe it’s a castle!)
