Mini Movers Classes

Our Mini Movers Program is specifically geared towards introducing young children (ages 2-6) to the fundamentals of dance in a fun and nurturing environment!

From the early stages of childhood, dance offers a unique blend of fun, fitness, and learning that can significantly contribute to a child’s physical development and emotional maturity. Whether it’s the joy of expressing emotion through physical movement, the excitement of learning something new, or the thrill of performing in front of others, our Mini Movers program is the perfect way to introduce important life skills at a young age in an entertaining and engaging framework. Our Mini Dancers who are enrolled will also have the opportunity to perform one routine in our yearly recital to showcase their talents and hard work.

Many parents recognize the benefits of dance however they struggle to find their child’s passion due to the lack of variety of styles at most studios. Island Style Dance Studio recognizes that exposure to a variety of dance styles for young children aids in their ability to find their passion, thus our Mini Movers Program includes technique classes for Ballet, Jazz, Ballroom and Hula that dancers can try each year until they have found one that they love and connect with the most.

  • Can I watch my child’s class?
    • Morning Classes: Parents are able to watch their dancers from our waiting room.
    • Afternoon Classes: There is a small hallway where parents can watch, however we prefer parents to wait in their cars if possible.
  • Are there other styles offered besides Ballroom, Hula, Jazz, and Ballet? If there is a particular style your little one is interested in, please feel free to give us a call with a request! If there is enough interest we would love to offer it!
