Youth Classes

 Note:  The DanceWell Youth classes and Kids Program are on Sundays.  Ask for Linda Springstead and the DanceWell staff, or look for (DW) classes.

KIDS & YOUTH CLASSES, AGES 6-16

“Teaching Kids and Teens Life-skills through Dance”.  Working with others beyond their own friends, combining dance lessons with common courtesies, helping students create a positive impression on others.  Social dancing skills can give your child confidence in life.

Focusing on:

  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Respect and acceptance of individual differences
  • Social skills and teamwork
  • Coordination and musicality

Classes are taught to a 50-minute hour and begin 1st week of each month.
No partner is needed.

The dance steps help break the ice and create a teamwork effort with various partners, while learning coordination and having fun! The cumulative effect of dancing and socializing over the months and years is of students who not only have fun and learn a great movement skill; they shed their shyness and emerge with self-confidence.
