Editor’s Tip
Social ballroom dance is the mother of all dancing. Many of today's performing dance forms, including ballet and jazz dance, evolved from social dance forms.

About
Petite Ballroom is a unique blend of classical ballet and ballroom dance. This class is suitable for toddlers as young as 14 months.

Developed by US and Eastern European ballroom dance champions, mothers of busy tots, the class is designed to spark a lifelong love for dance, music, and European and Hispanic cultures. Despite its fun nature, it will educate, not merely entertain. Moms and petite dancers will learn together, dance, get a great workout, and develop a special bond that will last for years to come!

Every single move and shake has been tested and approved by our toughest critics - our own children. While we are flexible in many ways, we adhere strictly to one rule: we must have a blast! The exercises will lay a solid foundation in both dance forms while using dance terms in French, Spanish and English. Petite dancers (and their caregivers) will develop the following skills and gain exposure to different cultures:

- PHYSICAL: Grace, body awareness, strength, flexibility, spatial orientation, gross motor skills, self-control - COGNITIVE: Being able to recognize, count and reproduce various rhythms and tempos, characteristic to both Ballet and Latin/Ballroom dance (e.g., Waltz, Tango, Cha-Cha, Salsa/Mambo, Merengue, Samba, Paso Doble, Swing) - SOCIAL: Proper dance etiquette, taking turns, ability to work in a team - CULTURAL: Exposure to European and Hispanicdances, culture and language
