Children’s Division (ages 2-5)
Children’s Dance Classes
In the LDT Academy Children’s Program, children as young as 2 years of age can begin to experience the joy and physical benefits of a children’s dance class. Imagination and storytelling through dance are emphasized using guided, creative, age-appropriate activities. Activities to develop coordination, body awareness, and ballet and tap disciplines are part of each class. The Children’s Program students have the opportunity to perform in two recital performances each year: The Holiday Recital for students registered in quarter two and the Annual Recital for students registered in quarter four.
Students must be potty-trained by the first day of class.
We also offer Little Birds music and movement classes for even younger children. For more information about Little Birds, check out the Dalcroze information in the Recreational/Add-on section of our website.

Intro to Dalcroze Eurythmics for Ages 2 to 4
In partnership with Integral Steps and using curriculum provided by The Dalcroze School of the Rockies, students experience music joyfully. Is your child a mover, shaker, and music maker? Dalcroze classes are designed for children as young as 6 months to 8 years of age. The high-energy classes help develop musicianship through active listening, rhythmic movement, and singing, in a fun, social setting.
