Remember the sweet dreams of childhood? At Tiny Dancers, we never forget!
Tiny Dancers is more than just a ballet school, it's a specialized dance program designed for children ages 2 - 12. Our family-owned studios, located in Alexandria, Mosaic and Fairfax Virginia, feature a literacy-based ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and musical theater program that provides young dancers with an outstanding technical foundation in a fun and nurturing environment. Beginning with our exclusive Wiggletoes classes for ages 2-3 year and continuing throughout the program, students are encouraged to learn through creative self-expression, exploration of movement and age-appropriate choreography.
While our core emphasis is on classical ballet, tap and jazz technique, the Tiny Dancers curriculum uses choreographed stories and fairy tales -- along with hundreds of custom-made costumes and props, as a teaching vehicle for dancers 2 - 5. Each week, the lesson plan is reinforced and brought to life as the students dance the adventures of “Rapunzel”, re-enact "Sleeping Beauty" or become the prince or princess in "Cinderella".
As our students master the fundamentals and mature as dancers, they graduate from fairy tales to a more intensive focus on technique, style, interpretation and choreography. At each step, we remain committed to providing the best dance education available by emphasizing positive self-esteem, technical excellence and a love of the art of dance.
