All Ages

Ballroom Kids Age Groups

Childrens’ Ballroom dance classes are differentiated by different ages and designed for kids’ rapid growth and development, both physical and mental, making kids learn communication skills in a community environment, listen and follow instructions, and become team players.

Children as early as 4 years of age may begin classes. Children ages 3 and under may have the chance to attend, but first must be approved by DSS instructors. Here, children start learning coordination and movement to music and some basic fundamentals of Ballroom Dancing.

Dancers ages 6 to 10. Here children begin learning the basic structures of the Ballroom & Latin dances, including choreography & technique. In addition, children will be exposed to 4 out of the 5 Latin-American Dances & 4 out of the 5 International Standard Dances.

Dancers ages 11-15. At this age, students will be exposed to all 5 Latin-American Dances and all 5 International Standard Dances to include in their educational resume. Classes will consist of basics & fundamentals in choreography & technique and the Open Advanced curriculum.

Why Ballroom

Why Should Children Ballroom Dance?

Ballroom dancing is the unique atmosphere where boys and girls come together in duos that essentially aid in constructing their lifestyles of sport and genuinely gracious character.

Boys

Ballroom Dancing is one of the only arenas of sport and art that incorporates physical strength with the importance of becoming a true gentleman in life. DanceSport, competitive Ballroom Dancing, builds and combines the fundamental elements of the sport, including endurance, stamina, bodily strength, flexibility, power, and speed, with the essential teachings of graciousness and gentleness towards others especially females. These teachings build the character that transforms young boys into young gentlemen who carry these traits of self-confidence and selflessness throughout the rest of their lives.

Girls

Ballroom dancing is the discipline of dance that genuinely transforms each young girl into a genuine young lady of feminity, kindness, care, and beauty that radiates from the inside out. Aside from her growing up physically active and healthy in terms of sport preparation, she will also learn how to take care of herself in terms of physical appearance, how she speaks and moves, her gestures, and how she acts to others. This is where girls learn to genuinely and honestly respect themselves.

The interests of each student comes first

Training Structure

Ballroom Dance Lessons for Kids

Our DSS Kids Programs are structured byΒ The Art of DanceSport Training System.

Children as early as 4 years of age may begin classes. Children ages 3 and under may have the chance to also attend, but first must be approved by DSS instructors.

When first signing up your child, you will decide what training path you would like for your child to engage in. After selection, we will then explain the method of training that will correspond to your preference for the best benefits for your child and their progress.

Your selection will result in a personalized training plan for your child. Each child will progress through our proficiency levels, regardless of whether they will participate in the competition. They will move through milestones and achieve goals that will indicate their progress in training.

Each child will graduate through each proficiency level. Competition is available at any level of proficiency. National and international competitions and training camps can be planned for future goal milestones for our DSS competitive team.
