Our 3-week-long summer program is great for busy schedules. Your child can still practice their dance skills while staying active and having fun.


Is dance a good option for my child?

Here at Mini Motions Dance Center, we believe that every child can benefit from dance. Our dance centers emphasizes all of the advantages of enrolling in a dance program. There is the physical aspect: dancing is a great way to keep your child moving their body and building muscles. Dance is also an excellent way to cultivate coordination, balance, and to build motor skills. When your child is dancing with us, they learn spatial awareness and how to control their bodies. Your child’s physical health will certainly benefit when they enroll in our dance programs! Apart from the physical benefits, your child learns personal and social skills that they will carry with them throughout their life. Dance can be individual, but you must work as a team to create a cohesive performance. They will learn to listen to the direction of our instructors while making friends and creating something beautiful with their class. Dancing provides the opportunity for your child to try new things, gain confidence, and appreciate their body for the cool things it can do. When your child learns to gracefully leap across the stage or balance on their toes for the first time, we get to watch their confidence soar, and so do you.


Will my child get the chance to perform?


Yes! Every year we put on a recital to showcase the things your child has learned throughout the season. This is a chance for them to see that hard work pays off, and they can be proud of all of the hours they have put in over the school year. Performing on stage in a recital setting gives your child a sense of pride and confidence that we love getting to see!


Can I watch my child during classes?

Absolutely! To your children, watching them during class is a huge sign of your support and interest in what they are working toward. That’s why we request that you participate in your student’s progress by observing class at least once a month. Our instructors love to see parents take an active interest in your child’s dancing because they know how much it benefits your child—both as a dancer and, more importantly, in their relationship with you.


Do you come to day cares or schools?

 

Yes! We can attend day cares, schools, girl scout troops, play groups or other special events.  Having our team come to you is a fun, exciting event for your kids. Dancing is a fantastic way to build motor skills even in the youngest children. Music and movement are great ways to keep kids entertained and give them a new experience that they will love. We can attend as a one time class or as often as you want.


Do your instructors offer private choreography?


You bet! We love working with cheer groups to provide dance choreography and instruct in group tumble classes. Learning choreography from trained dancers is a great way to broaden your skills as a cheer team and get the technical training you need to perform at the highest level.

 

We also offer wedding choreography for both couples and bridal parties. One of the most fun parts of a wedding is the dancing. When you work with our team, we can take even the most inexperienced and awkward “movers and shakers” and transform you into a coordinated team that leaves a lasting impression! We so enjoy getting to help you make memories and have a fun time at your wedding with choreographed dances!
