Lively and energetic jazz teaches coordination and fast reactions while injecting a healthy dose of fun into the class.
Stories and make-believe take an important role in dance development. Drama through voice, face and movement is encouraged to develop confidence and self esteem.

Can parents watch the classes?You are absolutely welcome to watch the first lesson that your child attends. For Tippy Toes classes, this is normally a necessity to ensure that child & parent are both comfortable! For subsequent lessons, parents won't be in the room. This is not to be unkind to parents, it's because the students focus better without having parents & siblings in the room. For Tippy Toes classes, it sometimes takes two or even three lessons with the parent in the room before the child is comfortable. Over the years, we've become skilled at keeping child & parent happy when joining our classes.
