Our sessional classes are a great way to introduce your little one to dance and try new and different genres without making a full year commitment. We offer a diverse selection of Sessional dance classes for children ages 1+. Our classes are age and developmentally appropriate, and because we believe that play is the foundation for learning, all dance skill development at this age is grounded in play-inspired movements, imagination, exploration and musicality!
