Tinies Intro-20.png
 

The Tinies program at the Dancer's EDGE prides itself on being the most rewarding and comprehensive young dancer experience in the area. 

Each Tinies class focuses on the basic fundamentals of dance wrapped in a fun and creative package to keep students engaged and entertained. Games and memory exercises are key ingredients in the class as well as props and age-appropriate music. In addition, students in Tinies 1 and up begin to learn a routine that will be performed in our annual Recital. This experience is the highlight of the year for many of our young dancers, as costumes and stage makeup are part of the fun!

Teeny Tinies (Ages 18 Months - 2.5 Years)

Creative Movement in a Mommy (or Daddy!) And Me format

If you have a young dancer who's already movin' and shakin' but a little too young for our Tinies 1 class, Teeny Tinies is an excellent way to instill rhythm, creative movement, and comfort in a classroom environment! The 30-minute class is designed for students ages 18 months - 2.5 years and is a Mommy (or Daddy!) and Me format.

Teeny Tinies and parents are welcome to wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. Some families choose to dress their student in a leotard for fun, but it is not required! Specific shoes are also not required - students can go barefoot or in a light pair of socks.

+ Registration Timeline

Teeny Tinies classes do not participate in Recital, so registrations are simply month-to-month. For this reason, we do accept registrations in Teeny Tinies at any point during the school year session.

Tinies 2 (Ages 4-5)

Ballet, Tap, Tumbling/Flexibility

Tinies 2 is for dancers who are 4 (turning 5 throughout the school year) and are in preschool or AK. Tinies 1 is not required beforehand to enroll in a Tinies 2 class (the Tinies 1 material will be reviewed at the start of the session). This 45-minute per week class continues to develop rhythm, coordination, and an understanding of the basics of ballet and tap.

Tinies 3 (ages 5-6)

Ballet, Tap, Tumbling/Flexibility, Pre-Jazz

Tinies 3 is for students who are 5 years old (turning 6 throughout the school year) and generally in Kindergarten. Tinies 2 is not required beforehand in order to enroll in Tinies 3 (previous material will be reviewed at the start of the session). This 45-minute per week class really starts to showcase how competent young dancers are by the age of 5. Increased speed, difficulty, and overall knowledge of ballet and tap steps keep the student challenged and progressing rapidly, meanwhile continuing to use play-based activities to teach basic acting/performing skills and continued creative movement development. The class also begins an introduction to jazz technique to help students transition effectively into Level 1 classes once they enter 1st Grade.
