Named 'Best Place to Dance' in the June 2018 issue of NoVA Magazine
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 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 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, hip hop 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.
