DIRECTOR: Lori Rodger

Baby Ballerina is a truly unique and special experience for our youngest dancers age 15 months to 5 years old. It is sweet and nice & kind where smiling, sharing, and saying "Thank You Very Much" are the main rules. It is filled with fairies and fairytales where imagination rules, creativity runs amuck and learning is disguised with cute-ness and fun! Baby Ballerina has been mommy adored and ballerina loved for over two decades . It is just what every mommy dreams of for her little girl and what every little girl's dreams are made of.
