Dance Classes for Kids Near me

So, a commonly asked question is: When should you start looking for Dance classes for Kids nearby?

Well, most of them accept children as young as 16 months – 2 years to give them some foundation for Dance at an age-appropriate level.

More structured classes and learning usually begin at age five since most children begin to understand learning techniques around this time, and they have longer and better attention spans; they can follow directions and can handle some criticism constructively.    

If your child is a little older, they may want to try locally renowned Hip Hop Classes under the instruction of Fenton Fulgham at Fenton’s Dance Factory on Parker Road. We saw some of their performances at a recent City of Plano festival and the kids were so talented!

If you are looking for an after-school or weekend activity for your child, dance or gymnastics offers many benefits.
