Dance lessons for ages 3 and up will be offered at St. Francis Music Center, Little Falls, starting Saturday, January 6.
Dance classes at the Music Center follow a strong, age-appropriate dance curriculum. The program is designed to give young students an introduction to dance that covers basics in tap, ballet, jazz and creative movement. The main goal of the dance program is to teach dancers to be creative, physically fit, flexible, confident and artistic.
Dance classes will meet Saturday mornings. There are classes for 3-year-olds from 9-9:30, 4-and 5-year-olds from 9:30-10:15, and 6-to 12-year-olds from 10:15-11. There will be two 8-week sessions followed by a dance recital in April.
