Bravo!’s Mini Dance Program was designed to build confidence and discipline through a fun and creative program that inspires children to learn while interacting with others.
It is our goal to instill a love for the art of dance while developing fine and gross motor skills in our students. Allowing time each class for creative movement exercises can help to build skills that can enhance academic learning. All classes are taught by experienced professionals in a friendly and positive classroom.
