ZoomDance's 30-minute classes are filled with dance, music, storytelling, imagination, and fun! We will keep kids moving and using their bodies with a range of creative activities. We'll dance our way through stories, exploring the characters and adventures through dynamic movement, songs, and performance, and leave space for everyone to show off their favorite moves.

This is best suited to kids around 3-8 years old, though siblings are welcome. Families will be sent a zoom link to join class.
