Searching for age-appropriate dance classes for toddlers can be a struggle! You want your toddler to be challenged but not overwhelmed. Luckily, Dance to EvOLvE has locations in Cleveland, Chicago, and San Diego where we offer a variety of kids dance classes. If you live in another area, fret not. Here are some tips to help you choose a class…
Check out the schedule
Is there a variety of classes for all ages? Do the dance classes have appropriate music, moves and parent involvement? You wouldn’t want your 2 year old doing the same activities that the 10-year-olds are doing!
Next, look at the type of classes offered. Are only hip-hop classes offered? What about creative movement? Popular dance lessons for toddlers include creative movement classes, hip-hop classes, and combination classes. The latter offers a mix of tap and ballet.
What is your toddler interested in?
If you are noticing a lot of twirling and tapping at home, tap could be the way to go. Once you have the genre down, examine the studio. Is there an emphasis on ensuring toddlers feel welcome? An age-appropriate local dance lesson will have the perfect balance of fun, learning, and challenge.
Make sure the music and moves are age -appropriate
Dance moves need to be appropriate. A two-year-old in a ballet dance class should be dancing to different music than a 10-year-old in a hip-hop dance class. To ensure the music and dance moves are appropriate, take a trial class.
An age-appropriate toddler dance lesson makes all the difference. This age is crucial for your toddler to grow, learn and try new things. According to factsforlifeglobal.org, a two-year-old should be able to follow simple instructions as well as imitate the behavior of those around them.
Dance to EvOLvE wants your toddler to reach their full potential while experiencing lots of smiles and giggles. A great way to do this is to find a fun, exciting, and age-appropriate local dance class for your toddler. We hope you found this guide helpful.
