I have been wanting to get Maggie involved in dance to see if she is interested to pursue it as a fun, extracurricular activity, so when I learned about Soul Studios Dance in Sarasota I jumped at the opportunity!
I am so glad we checked it out because we had such an amazing experience! Maggie’s teacher was wonderful with the students. She was energetic and fun. As I was peeking through the window (through basically the entire class), all I saw were big smiles and laughter. The kids were having a blast.
The class Maggie attended was the Tumble & Twirl for ages 4-7. The class was small and intimate, which I love because the teacher and her assistant had time to work with each student individually to teach them dance steps and moves. They learned stretches and danced to “Moana” songs – which, of course, the kids LOVED!
At the end of the class, they did a few minutes of free dance with glow sticks in the dark- that was really neat and exciting for the kids.
There are classes for kids of all ages! You can bring your child in at the early age of two years old for Mommy and Me classes on Saturdays from 10:30-11AM.
