Dance Schools: Tap, Jazz, and Ballet for Little Ones

Your baby girl is finally old enough to put on those adorable leggings, leotard, and dance shoes and do more than just dance to the music in the living room. She is five years old and you have been waiting for this moment for as long as you can remember. You grew up dancing; in fact, your first memories include many dance moments. So when you were pregnant you were so excited to learn that you were having a girl. You have three older boys and you had almost lost hope of having a dancing baby girl. Now, the time has come to enroll her in one of the best dance schools in Charlotte.

Ballerina School
One of the areas of dance the little ones start out doing is ballet. Ballet is a beautiful dance style that teaches graceful movements. The younger children start out by learning the first two or three positions and the simple movements associated with basic ballet. Before you know it your little ballerina will be perfecting her plies and leaps.

The second area of focus for the younger children is tap. This is one area of dance that the children absolutely enjoy. What child doesn’t love to make lots of noise? Tap shoes provide that tap, tap, tap noise that children love and also prove a percussion sound. Your baby girl will begin to learn the art of syncopation and dancing ‘close to the floor.’ Before you know it she will know the difference between the shuffle ball change and the flap heel. Tap dancing was always your favorite.

Jazz Dance
The last area of focus for the little ones is jazz dancing. The reason why most dance schools in Charlotte choose to focus on these three instead of just one is to give the children an opportunity to experience three of the most popular styles of dance which will usually allow them to decide which they like the most. As the children get older they can then begin to specialize. It may be ballet, tap, or jazz or a couple of each. It doesn’t matter what your daughter chooses, you just want her to have fun.


  1. I have no children but if I had had a little girl I definitely would have had her take dance lessons-although if she were at all like me she would not enjoy them! I really did not like dance classes-not everyone does!!

  2. I was in tap class for exactly a week before they kicked me out. I didn't want to learn the dance, I just wanted to play in the shoes.

  3. I was never interested in dance when I was younger but would love to take it now. I kind of wish I had a daughter so I could do mom/daughter classes if they have them.

  4. I wish I could find a dance class of some sorts for my toddler. She's not old enough for any of the ones around us.

  5. aw to have a little girl to put in dance class how wonderful hope she has fun

  6. Thanks for the great dance school information. I would love to take dance lessons for myself. I think it would be really fun.

  7. My daughter has never done dance yet, but she is very interested in gymnastics.

  8. My daughter's interest in ballet vanished lol. She found a passion in piano though.

  9. I want my daughter to be enrolled in a ballet school someday.

  10. Those precious moments are just amazing, and then time flies so fast you won't even know about what's coming next


Thanks all for dropping by. I love to read your comments. Have a good day.
