Young Children’s Program
Our classes for children ages 3 to 7 years, provide a warm atmosphere that encourages young dancers to express themselves through their natural love of music and movement. Classes emphasize foundational dance skills, coordination, and musicality, providing an excellent foundation for VAB’s progressive dance training program.
