Performing Arts Center for the Whole Family.
BabyTunes Ages 2-3.5 years
Baby Tunes is our forty five min introductory dance class containing tap, ballet, creative movement and a whole lot of fun. . Young dancers will learn the basic steps while learning how to follow directions, take turns, share, and imitate movement in a positive environment. Engaging music is used to get these little guys inspired to dance. The use of props such as hula hoops, a wobbly balance beams, tunnels, rhythm band instruments, and a parachute enable the young dancers to use their imagination and creativity.
What to expect on the first day!
We are very excited to welcome your little one to our Baby Tunes program. Baby Tuners sometimes come into the classroom very slowly, but make the most measurable progress by the end of the year!! We look forward to seeing all of the beautiful little dancers all dressed in their dance clothes, ready to dance! We know that as a parent you have a vision for how you think the first day will go. We are including this information to give you some ideas of how it might go, and how it might not. All children are different and react differently in situations.

Usually a brand new 2 year old will cling to mom as they walk in the studio door, as they are unaware of their environment. Everything to them is new. Please arrive early on the first day in order to get them acclimated to their new teacher and environment.
Separation anxiety is one of the most common issues on the first day, you may help your child overcome this by explaining to your child before they arrive that mommy will watch on the monitor during the class and that mommy won’t leave.
Our Baby Tunes class is designed as a teacher/child class. Our policy is that all parents need to be in the lobby when class is in session. We also need to keep the door to the studio closed during class, in order to avoid any wandering Baby Tuners . We will work with you and your child to achieve success in bringing Baby Tune Babies into the classroom without mom. This is a gradual process for some babies.
Have you ever noticed that when one 2 year old begins to cry, the others follow suit? We handle this as it occurs. We are all moms and only want this to be a positive experience for both mom and child. Most of the time our little Baby Tuners come into the room right away and never look back. Sometimes children aren’t ready for a teacher/child class. As parents, we won’t know until we try. Please remember that it sometimes takes a few weeks in order for the child to warm up to the idea, even if they LOVE to dance.
Lastly, our goal on the first day is to get every child into the class without mom and without crying. If we have done that we have succeeded. Please don’t be alarmed if your child just stands in her hula hoop and stares at the teacher jumping up and down. They are simply observing their environment. They will dance when they are ready!!! We hope you all have a positive experience at our studio. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have questions or concerns
