Twirling tots is designed for the young dancer who is between the ages of 3-5 years of age and ready for a challenge! This 45 minute class combines the high energy of Jazz dance, the gracefulness of Ballet, the challenges of Acro and the hand-eye coordination of Baton Twirling. Fun and creativity play a big part in this class but now the focus is on increasing flexibility, body awareness and musicality. This 45 min class provides an excellent foundation for further training in all areas of dance, acrobatics and baton twirling.
This program is a great option for those twirlers who have tried our Introduction to Baton 8 week session and want to continue to build on their new skills without the commitment of group or competition or just want to participate in a year long recreational class. Participants will have the opportunity to work towards ribbons and badges.
