Hinsdale Dance Academy's Young Children's Program offers classes for children age six and younger, including Mommy & Me, Pre-Ballet I, Pre-Ballet II, Tap/Jazz I, Tap/Jazz II, Tap II, and Jazz/Hip Hop II.

Mommy and Me is an interactive class where children and parents can discover the joy of movement.  We believe a child’s (and parent’s) first experience with dance should make a positive and lasting impression. Children have fun in a safe, creative, and nurturing environment.  Classes available for children ages 0-2 and parent or caregiver.

Pre-ballet provides children age 3-6 developmentally appropriate ballet instruction.  This introduction to ballet lays the foundation for our Youth Training Division, Level I.  These classes promote beginning technique, coordination, rhythm, and musicality.  Pre-Ballet I is designed for children age 3 to 4, and  Pre-Ballet II is designed for children ages 5 to 6.

Hinsdale Dance Academy also offers a tap, Jazz, and hip hop combo classes for our Young Children’s Program.  This class introduces children to the basic steps of tap dancing and Jazz.  This class promotes musicality, coordination, and rhythm, as well as sequencing, patterning, and spatial relationships.  Tap & Jazz I is available for children age 3 to 4. Tap & Jazz II and Jazz/Hip Hop II classes are available for children age 5 to 6.

* Children in Pre-Ballet I must be potty-trained and be able to remain in class without a parent or guardian.

* Age requirement as of September 1
