Toddler dance Program! (ages 2-3)

Mini-Movers/Dance Together Class Our toddler classes are a fun intro to movement, motor skill development, and creative expression! We incorporate basic rhythms, floor patterns, dancing props, and musical instruments while learning to follow a teacher’s directions. Here at CBM, we provide inclusivity for all of our students. There are many ways to learn to dance and move other than following an instructor; we read books about movement, use visual pictures, introduce students to the ABCs of yoga and practice breathing techniques. All the while your Mini-Mover is engaging in a social setting with other 2 and 3-year-olds!
