Our showcase for our Pre-Dance Division students (ages 2.5 - 6) is a very exciting, yet comfortable experience for our youngest dancers. It is an optional performance opportunity for all dancers enrolled in the 2nd session. This on-stage production gives dancers the opportunity to showcase what they have learned in an informal stage setting. Dancers are provided with simple costumes and headpieces. Our Pre-Dance Classes pair with our North Shore Ballet Theatre to present the story of The Little Mermaid. These productions are fun and exciting for all; they will certainly put a smile on your face!
