First Steps

Movement Classes for Ages 2-5

Our Early Childhood Dance Classes in Newton, Ma are designed to introduce young dancers to the world of dance in a playful and comfortable setting. Dance can be a fun and exciting activity for children. But what a child learns in a dance class is so much MORE THAN just the STEPS we teach them!  With every lesson, they are also working on improving their balance, coordination, listening skills, and locomotor skills, and they are learning how to work well with other children in a team setting as well as learning how to follow directions.  These are all important components in every single class as well as important skills for every developing young child.   Our instructors at Creative Steps Dance Studio have developed a curriculum that will teach the dancers age appropriate skills in a fun, imaginative way while challenging their growing minds and bodies. Contact us today to get started!
