Dance Classes for Children and Teens
Children, no matter their background or circumstances, love to express themselves in so many ways. Positive creativity allows children to develop socially, emotionally, and academically, while understanding and appreciating the satisfaction of a job well-done. Creative expression is natural, and, when properly tended, can provide a lifetime of joy.
A child’s naturally boundless energy and positivity makes dance an ideal outlet. Dance, be it tap, hip-hop, jazz, or classic ballet, offers fun and creative expression in a controlled environment. While learning the basic steps, children are exposed to the history of movement. Through classic ballet, your child can learn technique and aesthetic appreciation of a form of dance that is centuries old. Tap incorporates rhythm. Jazz adds form, and Hip-Hop provides an outlet through contemporary movement.
At Dance Makers dance studio, in Metropolitan Washington, DC, we appreciate your child’s need for creative movement. Through our many dance classes, your child can progress from beginner to advanced level. Each individual student is encouraged in their desired area of performance art. All students are afforded the opportunity to audition for competitive dance troupes.
Our Maryland Dance Studio — Serving the Community Through Dance
Affirming self-esteem through healthy ways is why Dance Makers developed our One Step Forward (OSF) Before and After School Program. Through OSF, Dance Makers provides a nurturing, safe and secure environment at our dance studio for at-risk youth ages 5-14. Our purpose is to provide an avenue for our most vulnerable children to develop artistically, while being provided with academic assistance. We offer supervised completion of homework, snacks, afternoon supper, and one hour of creative movement through dance.
Dance Themed Birthday Parties
At the Dance Makers dance studio we strive to provide an atmosphere fun. Themed birthday parties are offered through Dance Makers. Our dance birthday party packages are individualized based upon your child’s age and interests. The birthday guy or gal, from pre-k to tween, can design a tu-tu, play dress-up, sing karaoke, and yes-even dance.
Adult Fun and Fitness
Dance isn’t just for kids. Adults can express themselves creatively, have fun and get a high intensity aerobic workout as well. Dance Makers offers a wide range of classes for adults, including Zumba and Hip-Hop Aerobics. Our professional instructors will take you through a fat-burning workout and you’ll tone up, slim down and have a great time.
Dance Classes for Boys
By introducing your son to dance, you’ll provide him with the tools he needs to practice creative, disciplined self-expression, and respect for himself and others, while fulfilling that naturally competitive edge some boys seem to covet.
Dance classes for boys are gaining students. With today’s popular dance culture, through television competitions and mainstream recognition of dance as sport, as well as art, boys and girls are flocking to dance studios across the country.
