Kids dance classes are a great way to introduce your kid to the arts. Most kids enjoy music and find dance fun. If you're considering enrolling your child, you'll have to find a convenient location. Luckily, there are several places to look for classes. It might take you a while to find a place, but there are some suggestions below.
First, you can check for community classes. Most cities have community schools that offer a variety of classes. The classes might be low cost or free. Some places even have special classes for children from low-income households. Check your local phone book or ask around about community classes.
The local YMCA is another source. Contrary to popular belief, the YMCA offers more than exercise and swimming classes. You might be surprised to learn that they sometimes have dance classes as well. Give them a call and see what you find out.
Second, some schools and universities offer unique dance classes for kids. If the school has a dance program, then it's likely that they offer courses for non-students.
The best way to find out is to check which schools in your area have a dance program. Give the schools a call and inquire about classes for a child. Even if they don't have what you need, they might point you in the right direction.
Third, ask among friends and family. Chances are someone you know already has a child taking lessons. This is probably one of the best ways to find a dance class. Parents are always willing to share helpful information with other parents. If there's a school or class they recommend, they will gladly share the information.
