Watch your child's for music and dance grow as they leap to new heights in DSOTA's foundational dance program! Our dance teachers will encourage your child's initial interest in dance to expand into a deep love music and movement as they balance the importance of a firm foundation in the key artistic elements of dance, while allowing the freedom for artistic expression in a fun, creative studio space!
