30 Years Experience To Inspire Your Child In Fairy Tale Ballet & Tap
Wondering what type of fun and enriching activity to put your son or daughter in?
Have you been looking up dance classes for kids without knowing which one is just right for your amazing toddler?
The 4-6 Year Old Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap class is the perfect choice!
For over 37 years as a ballet school and dance academy we have provided an exceptional program for 4-6 year olds!
Taught by professional and friendly teachers in a one-of-a-kind dance academy specializing in beginners to adults, this 45-minute class meets once a week to teach the basics of ballet and tap to your little one.
From ballet stretches to tap dancing foundation steps, your child will get an amazing dance education all while having the time of his or her life!
The 4-6 Year Old Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap class here at the Christine Rich Studio is perfect for your child! No matter if your toddler seems to be outgoing or timid, he or she will have a blast in this class.
After only a few weeks of taking a Fairy Tale Ballet & Tap class, each student is always eager for the toddler dancing to begin, and everyone always leaves the classroom with a smile.
Our toddler dance classes set the foundation for our upper level dance lessons such as ballet classes, acrobatics, jazz dance classes, and hip hop dance classes.
Youngsters learn dance room etiquette and develop exemplary behavior within a few short weeks so that class becomes about dance and creativity, not “running wild.”
Everything from rhythm, etiquette, focus, manners, French terminology, dances and more are covered leading up to the May recital when the 4-6 year olds dazzle the audience with their charm and talent.

As you can see, the 4-6 Year Old Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap class has many benefits! We even offer two separate opportunities for parents or guardians to dance with their amazing kids. Two times each semester we like to invite our dance families to not only watch from inside the classroom, but also to dance alongside their talented son or daughter. These interactive classes tend to be the favorites of our toddler dancers as well as the parents.
During the regular weeks of dance class, families are still able to observe their children’s class by watching from the adjacent hallway or on a TV monitor in the spacious lobby.
For our Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap classes, the girls are required to wear plain toddler dance leotards in solid pale pink, black, or white. Boys wear a fitted white t-shirt with black bike shorts. Ballet dance takes place in the first half of the class in ballet slippers, pink for the girls and black for the boys. The second half of the class is filled with tap dancing where every student wears black tap shoes. All of the toddler dance shoes can be purchased from Austin’s Sportswear in downtown Champaign, Il.
Each spring semester, our Fairy Tale students jump for joy as soon as their dance recital costumes arrive. Although dressing like a ballerina each week is very exciting for the girls, the recital costumes get our toddler dancers even more excited to come to class and prepare for the recital.
The 4-6 Year Old Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap class is the perfect toddler activity for your preschooler or kindergartner.
We are so excited that you are considering the Christine Rich Studio for your child’s dance lessons!
