KIDS Are TOPS Sports Center: Dance

At KIDS Dance, we strive each and every day to make sure we provide a unique and fun environment for children to learn and explore the art of dance.

Our staff is unique as they actively participate in demonstrating steps and choreography to help involve the students, regardless of their style of learning. Our staff members have experienced and professional backgrounds including professional dance companies, nationwide choreography in shows and parades, and even worldwide dance experience.

Our state-of-the-art faciliy is truly one of a kind. Elevated, sprung, marley dance floors allow students to practice on a professional surface, while preventing injury and relieving the stress on the body. We believe parent involvement is key to success, so we have a large viewing window in each classroom with bench style seating so you can our students' progress in every class. Student to teacher ratios can determine the attention and success of our students, so we keep our numbers at 9 to 1 or less.

All KIDS Are TOPS programs offer a FREE trial class. Call us at (937) 435-7626 for more information.

   

*All of the following classes are Recital classes and will participate in our annual Dance Recital. Please visit the Recital page for important due dates, costume information and more. All students in the classes below must also take note of the KIDS Dance program dress code.

Non-recital classes will start in January 2015. A schedule will be passed out in December. There is a limited number of class times, so not all genres of dance will have non-recital classes.

For more information on the KIDS Dance program, please e-mail our Dance Director, Cara Gerak, at caragerak@gmail.com.
