Tiny Tot Program
Students are introduced to basic ballet and tap vocabulary, while exploring movement and music in a fun, creative way. These classes focus on rhythm and coordination; mixing in lots of creative ideas to keep the children interested and having fun.
Our instructors use imagination games, upbeat age-appropriate music and props like scarves, hula hoops, crowns and bean bags to inspire and excite students about dance.
Students will also work on classroom skills such as following directions, listening and waiting their turn. This class is a positive and fun first dance experience for all!

The Required Uniform
Once that you have decided to dance with us, it is time to prepare your child for success in the classroom by purchasing appropriate dancewear.
Skaters need skates, swimmers need swimsuits, music lessons need an instrument, dancers need dancewear.
Dancewear is an integral part of every dancer’s life.While parents may wish to buy dancewear that allows some growing room and lesser quality materials for a more cost-effective purchase, this is not advisable. Dance clothing is intended to be ‘fitted’, and have a three-way stretch as part of the functions.
There is a safety aspect, too. For example, if leotards are too big and baggy, the teacher cannot see any postural problems. If dance shoes are from Walmart or Payless, they are made of plastic and do not stretch with your child's foot. Slippers that are too large create and unsupported foot and not to mention, a trip hazard!
Finally, studio uniforms are a way of adjustment and discipline, as well as representing the studio culture. Everyone wearing the same clothing prepares students for a structured environment of formal behaviour.
Dancewear discipline is required at Gotta Dance!
