Our Kids Programs are lead by Meghan Sissom. Meghan has a background in Psychology and Sociology and holds a Masters in Education with a focus on movement and dance for children with learning disabilities. She studied Integrated Dance at the University of Washington. She has worked with children for almost 20 years specializing at times with at-risk children and teens on the autism spectrum. Bringing dance into her work creates a joyful place to teach and learn.

Meghan specializes in a neuro-exercise called BrainDance(c) and taught alongside expert Anne Green Gilbert at the Creative Dance Center in Seattle. Each of Meghan’s classes is designed to engage all learning styles and is developmentally appropriate for the specific age of the class. Each child is supported and encouraged to learn in their own style, at their own pace. Learn more about Meghan.

Creative Dance for Toddlers

Saturdays 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. // Walkers – 2.5 Years & Caregiver

In the toddler class, we focus on social and emotional learning through bonding with parents and dancing with friends. In each class, we introduce a different concept such as level, relationship or speed and practice gross and fine motor skills utilizing various props and activities such as instruments, parachutes, drumsticks and more!

It is also a nice workout for caregivers. You will fully participate in each activity, creating a model for your child as they are watching and learning through their visual cortex, a key area of development and learning at this age.

Creative Dance for Preschoolers – Starting in January!

Saturdays 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. // Ages 3-5 Years

In this class, children begin learning about dance concepts such as relationship, speed, self-space and general-space. Children will develop language literacy, socialization, centering, integration and expressive arts curriculum while fine-tuning gross and fine motor skills utilizing props and dance.

Caregivers have the option to stay or drop-off their child and return at the end of class.

Yoga & Creative Dance for Kids – Starting in January!

Thursdays 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. // Ages 5-7 Years
