For The Young Dancer

For our littlest ones we have developed specific programs to introduce young students to the world of dance.

MY FIRST STEPS is a specially designed  introduction to dance for 2 year olds.  The program is varied and filled with fun!   Our nurturing faculty take our youngest dancers on an exciting exploration of music and movement.

Our PRINCESS BALLERINA program takes our youngest dancers (4-5 year olds) on a journey through the beautiful world of ballet with the magical help of their favorite princess characters!  Students learn the basics of ballet surrounded by the familiar music and props (wands, tutus, wings) of their favorite characters.  For the first semester, each month is presented by a different Princess and the final semester takes us into Glinda’s wonderful world of OZ.  This program is a perfect blend of the discipline and structure of ballet basics with the fun, joy and wonder of make-believe.  This is an experience that will be treasured by each young performer.

Our CURTAIN UP program is an exciting overview of the programs that are offered at our studio – Ages 3 to 4. Here, students begin to learn, through TAP, how sounds fit into music and to immediately tap into their musicality; through pre-BALLET, the grace of movement; through JAZZ basics how to isolate the different parts of their bodies. The program is quite varied, making it an exciting beginning of our young students’ dance education.

Our BROADWAY BOUND Program is for ages 5 and 6 yr olds and combines theatre dance elements – TAP & JAZZ training – to create our future Broadway dancers!  Center Stage students have graced the Broadway stage in over 15 Broadway shows (from “Cats” in the ’80′s to “In the Heights” and “Gypsy” a couple of years ago) and in countless national and international tours.  Start your young performer’s journey into the exciting world of the stage with this fun-filled program.

Our JAZZ/HIP-HOP programs for young children are for 5 and 6 year olds who love the newest dance music and want to SHAKE IT UP!  We combine Jazz technique and hip-hop fusion steps to create an exciting “bop til you drop” dance experience that will challenge and excite your young dancer!
