Plies, Pirouettes, and Poise

For living room leapers, bedroom ballerinas, and front yard frolickers, The Little Gym offers the perfect program to harness all that toe-tapping energy. The Little Gym of Puyallup Dance program introduces children to ballet, tap, and hip-hop techniques, while allowing them to express themselves through creative movement. Puyallup children spend a good part of class time refining their techniques in the studio space. Adding a unique twist to the program, dancers also spend part of each class working on complementary gymnastics skills in the gym in order to emphasize poise and balance. The best part? Each new burst of confidence will have you on your toes, too--with a proud standing ovation.
