Age 2.5 and 3 - Shore Stars Dance Academy

Beginner Dance Classes


At Shore Stars Dance Academy your child will be in a loving and comfortable environment where they can grow and develop lifelong skills.

In a small class with a loving teacher your child will:

  • Make new friends and develop social skills
  • Actively participate in a class setting
  • Dance, twirl, and explore
  • Learn and retain info through pretend play, creativity, self expression, and story telling
  • Increase physical and mental development
  • Have fun and feel proud of themselves

For my child this is the perfect class setting. She is safe, there is structure, and she is learning and laughing. Mom Jessica daughter Sophia age 3

I love that my daughter is taking class independently and I can watch from the TV in the lobby as I chat with the other moms. Mom Samantha daughter Ava age 2.5

All classes for age 2.5 and 3 include:

  • An introduction to basic Ballet and Tap movements and terminology
