WEE-DANCE-A Class for 2-3 year olds and their mom, dad, sitter or any caregiver! 

 WEE Dance is for Mommy (or Daddy/caregiver) and a tot. It is designed to help aid in the development of skills appropriate for a 2-year-old. For this reason, our class uses a parent or caregiver to help us orient the child into a classroom setting encouraging the development of fine and gross motor skills. These skills are developed through the use of music, dance, and support of those who love them. Along with assisting in the development of motor skills in the children, we incorporate sharing, taking turns, and following directions. These aspects all lead to the development of socialization and additional necessary skills of listening and memory.
