Toddlers – this one is for you! Grab your favorite adult and come dance! Create rhythms and movements and wonderful memories together!
That’s right, January 16, 2018, Briarwood Ballet kicks off its “Mommy & Me” eight-week class especially designed for children ages 18 to 36 months. “What a joy it is to teach toddlers to develop a love of movement and music!” explains teacher Meredith Dorough. “Our hope is that this early introduction will begin a lifelong appreciation for creativity and expression that will continue to develop for years to come.” Dorough brings a wealth of experience and excitement to this class. The mother of three grew up dancing with the Briarwood Ballet, was a member of the ballet’s performing group, Ballet Exaltation, and returned to be on staff in 2003. Since then, she has taught ballet to pre-school to high-school students and is the director of Briarwood’s performing group “Immanuel.”
Mommy & Me classes will be held every Tuesday from 9:15-10 a.m. at Briarwood Ballet/Briarwood Presbyterian Church, beginning January 16 through March 6. “This class is such a fun experience for me and my tiny dancer!” exclaimed one mom. “I loved seeing the joy on my daughter’s face as she was introduced to dance in such a fun way!” The class registration fee is $130.
