Looking for fun toddler activities? We have dance classes for toddlers in a dance class for 2 Year Olds!
This toddler dance class gets your child introduced to dance, classroom etiquette, fun, rhythm, coordination, following a teacher, performance, creativity and more toddler fun.
The Christine Rich Studio Dance Academy, known for its pre professional ballet school, is the dance school in Champaign, Savoy, and Urbana to create, and continue to offer today, a toddler dance class called “Dance Movement for 2-3 Year Olds”.
The toddler ballet and creative dance class meets once a week for 30 minutes of fun activity designed with toddlers in mind.
This toddler dance class is famous for its annual appearance in the dance recital as “The Bumblebees”.
What an exciting class for the running toddler! Our baby dance class will teach your toddler all about clapping, rhythm, jumping, music and movement, counting, sharing, waiting their turn, adventure and more.
We’ve designed lots of fun dances for them to learn which get their minds and bodies engaged.
Dances that focus on shapes using their bodies to make the shapes, dances to increase their rhythm and coordination and of course the joy of performing—which your child already may be a natural at.
Christine Rich Studio has decades of experience in these baby dance classes for 2 to 3 year old toddlers whether it’s boys wanting ballet or girls wanting ballet dance class. With their diapers or pull-ups poking out of their toddler dance outfits, these 2 year old toddlers are absolutely adorable as they are learning dance.
And learn they do. Many parents remark that their dancing toddler actually practices their new dance steps at home on their own after just the second class.
Christine Rich Studio Dance Academy is the perfect professional dance and ballet environment to be introduced to dance through toddler dance classes.
We also offer preschool dance class for ages 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds in our combo Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap classes as well as pre-professional dance classes for teens and adults.
This baby ballet class gets them into dance lessons designed to be fun classes for toddlers. This is why these dance classes make a perfect toddler activity!
We have a parent or guardian come into class too so that there’s more focus on learning rather than all playtime and running. Parents may dress casually and comfortably.
All of the basic motor skills are taught in this toddler class for 2 year olds such as walking backwards and forwards, leaping, hoping, jumping and more. We also teach toddler ballet lessons with first position, plies and ballet arm movements to classical music.
Of course there is a lot of creative movement which is always fun for the toddlers. Swaying “in the wind”, reaching for “the stars”, turning around and around…all of it is age-appropriate dance classes wrapped up in fun.
In fact, one dance is so much fun, they squeal with laughter every dancing class.
The toddler ballet class meets in the same classrooms where older dance students receive dance instruction. In fact, it’s so cute when the ballet toddler classes enter the dance academy’s classroom and the pre professional dance class students say “hello” to the little ones as then enter the room for their dance lessons.
The older “ballerinas” always learn to dance the same way — in those Dance Movement toddler classes and then, years later, many of them are professional dancers and/or at the top of their class in colleges.
The toddlers will also learn dance etiquette such as waiting their turn, dancing next to another toddler, saying “here” for attendance, cooperating with the teacher and parent, plus all the toddler fun they have in learning to dance.
Centrally located, we serve all areas surrounding Savoy, Urbana, and Champaign. Ballet is our foundational specialty and that is why we offer ballet classes for boys and girls of all ages or ballet lessons incorporated in parts of classes such as our toddler dance classes.
Our facility is breathtaking with gorgeous landscaping out and art in.
If your child is always dancing around at home in constant motion, learning dance in our professional fun classes will bring your toddler coordination, confidence and a burst of self-esteem, all benefits of dance classes that are done correctly.
Whether its ballet, tap, jazz dance, contemporary dance, acrobatics (like gymnastics), hip hop, show jazz, modern dance or dance classes for toddlers, dance is such an important part of a child’s life for those families who enroll.
We have a parent or guardian come into the classroom with them so it’s sort of like the famous Mommy and Me classes, except we have a whole lot of dads participating to assist the toddler dancing.
Let’s talk about the toddler dancewear such as toddler dance leotards (that is the piece that covers the torso and hips) and the toddler dance shoes (pink ballet slippers) and the toddler dance tights (they cover the legs). All of these can be purchased from Austin’s Sportswear in Downtown Champaign, IL for all your dance clothing for toddlers.
In the summer, we recommend your toddler wear ankle socks and in the winter wear tights.
The boy students wear a fitted white t-shirt and black bike shorts or black fitted knit shorts. They usually wear white ankle socks and black ballet slippers which you can find at Austin’s Sportswear as well.
Let us know if you have any questions. We sure appreciate you considering the Christine Rich Studio for your toddler’s dance instruction.
Once the toddlers turn a year older and it’s the start of a new season, your toddler can continue the fun toddler activities by advancing into our 3 Year Old Dance Movement class and then the preschool dance classes that we call Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap Classes for 4, 5 and 6 year olds for ballet, creative movement and tap lessons for preschoolers.
