At The Academy of Ballet Fantastique, children's dance lessons use creative concepts and dance games and exercises build spatial awareness and coordination. Students learn the joy of movement and the fundamentals of rhythm; establish a strong foundation of athletic, social, and artistic skills; and build a wonderful appreciation for the art, sport, and discipline of dance.  Dance class sizes are limited to just 12 children or fewer.

No prior dance or athletic experience required, but... Warning: kids who start dancing at BFan have been known to sleep in their ballet slippers, and put on performances in their home living rooms every day of the week!
