Mommy & Me  Dance & Tumble (ages 18 months - 2) 
Mommy & Me classes are a fun way for new moms and their babies

or young toddlers to connect with each other in a playful environment

with other moms and their babies. Moms get to shake up daily baby

routines and interact with other moms and their babies. They also get

a chance to get some exercise, and experience first time interactions

with other little ones. These classes are a fun learning environment

for both mother and child. Classes not only stimulate the learning

process in the child, but nurture the existing bond between mother

and child in a way that allows the mom to break away from the stresses of parenthood, while learning how to simultaneously play and grow with your child. Students may graduate to Twinkle Babies (dance) and/or Tiny Tumble (tumble) after Mommy & Me as soon as they are ready to separate and begin on their own.

ballet, tap and creative movement. Young dancers
