Ballet/Tap/Acro/Creative Movement

Dancers Unite has combination classes for young children with a mix of ballet, tap, creative movement and acro/tumbling.  Dancers Unite takes great pride in our preschool dance curriculum, which focuses on teaching the little ones proper technique and terminology in a positive atmosphere.  As the children are young, we strive to create the right balance of serious learning and fun.  We also work to challenge the children’s minds with creative movement activities.
