Our Preschool Dance Program also follows a play-based curriculum that focuses on monthly themes and weekly dance concepts. Classes change from week to week with a new dance concept which is taught in a fun and imaginative way. We bring our preschool dance classes to your preschool or early learning center!

    • “I have had the opportunity to observe several of the classes taught by
      Ms. Jessica. She is patient and gives clear directions. While using the correct
      terms for the dance positions/moves, she also provides a secondary
      explanation that is age-appropriate. My daughter enjoys her classes with
      Ms. Jessica and when asked, my daughter always has nice things to say
      about her teacher.”

    • “I wanted to drop you a quick note about Jessi. As you know, Jessi
      visited Patrick Henry about 10 days ago to introduce a dance lesson in my PE
      classes. What a wonderful job she did!!! She showed professionalism, enthusiasm,
      and a real knack for working with kids. The students here really loved her visit and
      what she brought to our classes.”

      PE Teacher
    • We have had Dance Exploration at our school for the past few years. They are a big
      hit with our students and families. Ms. Jessica is very reliable and enthusiastic as a
      teacher. She makes dancing fun for all levels, in a fun and relaxed environment. We
      like how Dance Exploration is a professional company and easy to get in contact with.
      Dance Exploration has great communication with the families in our school.
