Augusta GA – Dance Classes
Augusta Youth School of Dance offers a variety of children’s dance lessons for kids and preschoolers. In addition to our children’s dance lessons, we also provide a unique outreach program to daycare centers with courses in fitness, tap, and ballet.
The children’s dance lessons offered here at Augusta Youth School of Dance is an excellent way to harness the extra energy – and natural talent – that your child has. Each of our skilled, experienced dance instructors is passionate about teaching children the art of dance.
With the children’s dance lessons offered at our dance studio, your child will not only learn to dance, but they will also learn and demonstrate social skills and discipline that will carry them throughout their life.
Involving dance and the arts as part of your child’s experience is as important as scholarly pursuits. Dance is an important part of your child’s growth, creative expression and self-esteem. Through dancing, children learn things like who they are and how to interact with others. These elements are taught through dance in creative and unique ways, and this allows children to feel, move and think simultaneously. In dancing, children are comfortable communicating and expressing themselves through movement, which is a very natural way for children to express themselves. Dance also allows children to learn important skills like improvisational skills, focus and teamwork. As children participate in dance classes, they are given opportunities for creative decision making. This helps not only their self-esteem but also promotes thinking independently. Dancing also promotes the development of concentration, self-control, observation and perception.
From ballet to tap, hip-hop and more!

We offer ballet and tap dance classes for little ones where they will have fun learning through activities, songs filled with dance terminology, and props such as magic wands, canes, umbrellas for ballet, hats, pom-poms, tambourines, maracas for tap and tiaras and tutus. Preschoolers also have the opportunity to participate in our Spring Recital.
