Itty-Bitty Classes

Our Itty-Bitty Classes begin with our 30-minute Creative Movement Class: Itty Bitty Adventures for ages 2-4. Children will learn to adapt to a class setting, learn to be away from mom or dad for a period of time, work on motor movement skills, and learn skills that will prepare them for future dance classes as well as pre-school. This class takes your child on a new adventure each week. We'll scale mountains, fight off aliens, take an adventure through the jungle, and so much more! 

Next is our 30-minute Ballet Class: Itty Bitty Ballet for ages 2-4. This focuses more on learning the basics of ballet while learning to adapt to a class setting. Students will learn one ballet dance for the end of the season recital. And finally, we offer an Itty Bitty Hip-Hop class where our youngest dancers get to grove. Dancers will learn one dance for the recital. 


Space rental is available for any event! If you need the space for a party, but don't need all of what is included in the birthday package, you can simply rent out the space for $30/hour plus fees. Contact us today to book your event!

Our Recreational Program focuses on technique geared toward their specific dance style. We have a season-long commitment here at WME, where our students learn dances and technique from September - May, and finish their season with a recital in May or June. Students can enroll in classes up until the end of January to be eligible to perform in recital. Students who enroll after the end of January will only be eligible to perform in our finale dance.

Hip Hop
