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.

Baby Ballerina Class Descriptions

Baby Ballerina (15 months to 2 years old)

We’ll princess parade our way into a world of ballet, one tippy toe at a time! This action packed class comes with a nap guarantee! I wonder who is going to have more fun? Mommy or me!?!

Tiny Tap and Tutu (2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years old)

Sitting still is kind of tricky for us, but that’s okay! We’ll learn our first ballet positions by scooping kitties and catching butterflies with lots of help from wands, tutus and these new people called princesses - all with mommy’s leg nearby! And yes....we said tap for a 2 1/2 year old....and nothing could be better!!!

All Grown Up!  (4-5 years old)

These 1 hour Ballet, Tap & Jazz classes will be taught in the same wonderful Baby Ballerina way….but will have a few changes to help get us even more prepared for the “Big Kid” classes. Mommies and Daddies will now be completely outside of the room….and Dress-up is no longer required to help us LOVE dance….we already do!!

Twirly Tap & Jazzy Jazz (3-4 years old)

We are way beyond the baby stuff and almost have that sitting thing down. Mommy's leg doesn't even have to be that close. Now, it's time for the real ballerina-ing to begin! Let's do it all!!! Ballet, Tap & Jazz all rolled into one super fun class!

How does it all work?

Program offers two 16-week half-year sessions

Adorable child-friendly stage recital at the end of each session.

  • darling costume, tights, and hairpiece your dancer gets to KEEP!

  • Cookie Party!

Frequently Asked Questions

Whatever do we wear??

Leotard and tights….not really required, but totally part of the fun! Any and all colors are perfectly fine (although we rarely see anything other than pink!) Ballet shoes for all classes and tap shoes if we’re tapping!

Miss a class?

No Worries….it happens. Just come to another class in your child’s age group at either studio! Same thing for snow days…we follow LCPS for snow closures and delays. If there is a snow day or delay, just come to another class in your child’s age group at either studio.

Are parents allowed in the studio?

Parents will be allowed to observe Baby Ballerina, Tiny Tap and Tutu, and Twirly Tap and Jazzy Jazz classes
All Grown Up classes (4 - 5 year olds) – This hour long class will be considered a drop off. Enjoy the silence!!!

Can I join a class after the session has begun?

You may join in the fun any time!!! If the session has already begun, we will pro-rate the fee.


You may end up using a different door to enter and exit the dance studio. Some studios have their own door, and we will utilize them to keep the hallways clear. Each class is different. We will let you know which door you will be using.

Dance bags

Not necessary. Bring as little as possible in and out of the studio. Shoes and a water bottle should do it!

Can I pay my bill all up front?

There is no pay-in-full option. Tuition is collected in 5 payments of $75
