Sunshine Dance Studio offers classes designed for students who may need a little bit more 1:1 instruction, time, or space for creativity to discover new ways to express themselves. Activity songs and age appropriate movement are layered into classical ballet, folk, jazz and hip hop dance to ensure that everyone is excelling and having fun. Movement and dance help students of all ability levels with body awareness, social interaction, confidence and creative expression.
