Move Monkeys are our children aged 6 and older who have a passion for moving, performing, and learning!

We offer two main class categories for Move Monkeys: multi-dance and style-specific options. Just like all kids, Move Monkeys learn at their own pace. While we provide age suggestions, we're flexible to meet each child's needs.

 

Throughout their development, students have the opportunity to take on different roles as leaders and followers, depending on where they are in their own journey. This individuality is something we celebrate, as most classrooms group students by birth year.

Our classes are designed to create a solid foundation in dance and movement, all in a fun and supportive environment. Plus, there are plenty of chances to perform! To make the most of your Move Monkeys experience, we recommend enrolling in 2 to 3 classes per week. You can mix and match Move Monkeys Multi-dance with one or more style classes for a well-rounded dance education.
