Hip Hop & Tumble - ages 4-8  Dancers do 20 minutes of hip hop each week and 10 minutes of tumbling.  This class meets a half hour each week and will perform a dance routine in the dance recital in June.  This class is perfect from the young dancer who isn't interested in ballet and tap and has a lot of energy to invest into their movement.

Chance to Dance!  (Recommended for ages 5-10)

We are excited to offer an opportunity for neurodiverse students to dance and build a community!  All of our classes are open to students of all ability but this class will be specialized and offer opportunities for confidence building, socialization and dance basics for students with special needs.  We will use a lot of routines, repetition and meet them where their needs and abilities are to help them grow.

Lead instructor, Kelsey Rouleau has experince working with special education students and is excited to provide all dancers with a Chance to Dance!

Dance classes are based on age and experience.  At The Dance Garden every dancer is important whether they are here for recreational classes or competitive.  

After school activities should be a place where children feel safe and can build confidence!
