At AIM we believe every child deserves a strong dance foundation from their very first class. In all of our combo classes students will learn independence, cooperation, and sharing as well as movement skills such as balance, coordination, and fine motor skills. All of our instructors strive to help our dancers find the joy and creativity in dance. Our Dance Beginnings classes start at age 2 and go through age 6. All of the classes are combo classes which may include ballet, jazz, hip hop, or tap.
