Our creative movement class is designed for ages 2-4. In this class, dancers will learn how their bodies move and how to make rhythms with their feet and hands. Dancers will use vibrant props to help them understand many styles of dance. They will also use tumbling mats to start learning basic forward rolls with the assistance of an instructor. This class is a perfect "starter" for your toddler.

In tap, basic tap steps and progressions are taught, as well as music interpretation and music counts.

Clogging is our specialty. Clogging originated over 200 years ago and is changing rapidly in our area. In our clogging classes, dancers will learn progressions, techniques, rhythms, and musicality. At JM Studios, we teach traditional & contemporary styles of clogging so that your dancer isn't missing any skills in this complex dance style. New students will start in beginner and move up to a higher level at the instructor's discretion (please read our "class placement" policy" under the "Tuition & Policies" tab).
