Beaverton Area Dance Classes For Kids
Dancing can be a source of joy and inspiration that lasts a lifetime, and it can begin in early childhood when dance lessons are introduced at a young age. Twinkle Babies dance classes for kids create a welcoming environment for children from 18 months of age up to 2 years old.
The Twinkle Babies class is a gentle introduction to dance. Each child’s self-confidence is encouraged and supported while strength, flexibility and coordination develop. Our instructors introduce the use of props and create a fun, supportive environment for young dancers.
Skills Learned In Dance Classes
Children learn more than just how to move to the rhythm of music in dance classes. Participating in dance classes helps with building a variety of skills. Skills that are learned through dance begin with physical attributes related to movement and also include aspects related to an enhanced sense of self. These skills include:
- Problem-solving skills
Choosing a studio that’s conveniently located makes it easier to bring children to classes, so we offer choices between two locations for our students. New Vision Dance Center serves residents of the Beaverton and Hillsboro, Oregon, areas. The studios are located on Amberwood Drive in Hillsboro and on Horizon Boulevard in Beaverton.
Our family friendly, comfortable facility on Amberwood Drive is open on weekdays Monday through Friday and on Saturdays. Our Horizon Boulevard location has classes on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays. Our schedules are published on the website to make it easy for parents to keep up with seasonal changes and lesson times.
Student Suitability For Learning Dance
Our dance classes are set up to support children and developing dancers of all ages and at different developmental stages.
- Children are grouped by age so they’re in classes with other children of similar developmental levels.
- Our youngest group of dance students, those from 18 months old through 2 years of age, is referred to as our Twinkle Babies.
- The classes for our youngest two groups of dancers last only 30 minutes.
The lessons for these youngsters are based on using a fun approach to introduce children to dance.
Benefits Of Taking Dance Classes
The skills students learn in dance classes overlap with the benefits of taking classes. When skills like coordination and strength develop, benefits like better stamina and flexibility result from the extended practice of dance movements.
Dance class encourages physical fitness plus an appreciation for music and movement. It helps students increase strength and muscle control. Learning to dance helps students develop a love of movement that provides satisfaction and joy that lasts a lifetime. Dance also provides an outlet for energetic young children to release some excess energy in a positive and productive manner.

New Vision Dance Center focuses on creating a progressive learning environment that encourages each student to develop skills in a safe, creative and fun manner. Responsibility is taught as part of the discipline, as is body awareness. Students learn about the significance of warming up properly, about technique and about choreography.
