At Shore Stars Dance Academy we give our youngest students a loving and comfortable environment where they can grow and develop lifelong skills.

Your dancer will experience the joy of music, rhythm, song, and dance while participating in our dance program and dance classes here in Wall, NJ.

Through dance your child will learn to participate in a class setting, make new friends, develop their social skills, learn new vocabulary, increase their physical and mental development, and improve balance, coordination, agility, and fine/gross motor skills.

All dance classes for the 2 1/2 - 5 age group include:

  • An introduction to basic dance skills and terminology
  • The use of props such as wands, scarves, parachutes, obstacle courses, mats, and musical instruments
  • Stretching and body awareness activities
  • Singing and dancing to different songs and musical styles
  • Theme weeks
"For my child this is the perfect class setting. She is safe, there is structure, and she is learning and laughing with her dance friends". Mom Jessica daughter Sophia age 3
 

"I love that my daughter is taking class independently and I can watch her from the monitor in the lobby while chatting with the other moms. It really is a family centered studio." Mom Samantha daughter Ava age 2.5

PRESCHOOL STARS PROGRAM:

 (for children who are not yet in kindergarten)

 
In this program your child will begin their dance journey with an introduction to ballet, tap, jazz, and gymnastics. They will learn the basic steps of these dance styles in a small class with a supportive and encouraging teacher. Your dancer will participate in well designed lessons that incorporate pretend play, creativity, self expression, and the use of their imagination since this is how preschoolers learn best, stay focused, and retain information at this age. Your child will get to dance, twirl, and explore with age appropriate songs, stories, props, and activities. Every week your child will take home a new coloring page, a special sticker, and a note from their teacher to reinforce the skills learned in class and to bring their new love of dance home with them. Developmental benefits include BALLET: body awareness and poise TAP: rhythm and coordination JAZZ: energy and timing GYMNASTICS: strength and balance
 
"Don't worry mom, I'm doing great as a Preschool Star. I'm building my confidence, making friends, and learning dance in a creative and imaginative way!"

I am passionate about introducing your child to the wonderful benefits of dance in a way that will always feel positive and instills pride and happiness in their life.
