Children at this age are being introduced to the early stages of independence, but may require extra help and guidance from their caregiver throughout the duration of class. Caregivers will remain in the studio with their dancers. Creative movement, ballet and tap dance are the foundations of this class. A new class theme is highlighted every two weeks, utilizing a large variety of props and music.

Please arrive for class on time. If you step into class late or leave early, please do so discreetly. If you are 15 minutes late, you must sit and observe class. This is due to the warmup section of class concluding and to prevent injury.
If a dancer is having difficulty listening to the teacher and not following directions, a "Dance Break" will be encouraged, which allows the teacher to bring the student into the lobby for a brief moment where their caregiver can talk about why they need to listen to their teacher in dance class. The dancer may re-enter the dance class when they are ready to follow directions again.
KDA does not condone talking, running, unmonitored tumbling, disrespect and/or bullying. All participants must respect the studio, their teacher, their peers, and themselves.
