Fun and Interactive Dance Programs/ Current Thru May 2018
Children are always curious about what life has in store for them. Whether it’s playing, singing, or dancing, they find any new activity amusing and enjoyable. When it comes to dancing, The Dance Studio in Franklin, MA, offers interactive classes that promote fun and learning at the same time. ALL Classes Open to Boys and Girls!
Challenging yet Exciting Dance Styles
Rely on our skilled dance instructors to teach your child the fundamentals of ballet and tap dancing. We will enhance your little one’s talent and introduce him or her to two styles of dance.
Ballet is considered the foundation of all dance forms. Through our classes, students will continuously develop flexible and graceful techniques. Each session also includes vocabulary structure with grace, strength, poise, flexibility, and balance with individual corrections to body placement.
Tap, on the other hand, is the most rhythmic of all dance styles. Our class features the combination of musical theater, jazz, and numerous tap techniques. Your child will be able to fully understand and count music notes through our tap classes.

At The Dance Studio, we require our students to bring their own tap and ballet shoes. During the dance lessons, all children should be wearing leotards with their hair pulled back. Please note that for safety reasons, we do not require our students to wear any type of jewelry.
While we require your full participation during “Parent and Me” sessions, please be reminded that parents are not allowed in the classroom for other dance classes. You are only allowed to drop off your children to avoid distractions. We will however be holding a watch week later in the year.
We do our best to keep our students’ attention and prevent distractions from happening. This way, children can fully learn and understand what we teach. You can also count on us to take care of your little dancer when he or she feels upset during the first few sessions.
Children should be potty trained because our instructors do not change diapers or pull-ups. It is also important that you do not leave soiled diapers in our trash. This is to comply with the studio’s health standards.
We require every student to bring water bottles for breaks. Keep in mind that food is not allowed inside the studio.
