Maplewood Parks and Recreation

MaplewoodIn Maplewood we offer two sessions of dance classes throughout the school year that end with a full recital! These classes include our popular Wish Upon a Ballet, Hip Hop and Tap classes. Students can even continue taking classes in the summer! You have to check us out!

Wish Upon a Ballet is a preschool ballet program created by Gina Mayer. It starts with a popular children’s story or ballet and incorporates songs, dances and creative movement games that go along with its theme. Each session focuses on a new theme so students can continue to learn and grow with our ballet program from age 3 to 6. Students learn real ballet steps and class procedures while developing their musical expression and creativity. Little bodies will grow in strength and flexibility and minds will expand and feel free to create! Each session ends with an informal performance for families.

Our Hip Hop classes will be sure to keep students active. The students will learn warm-ups such as stretching, isolations and across the floor exercises as well as dances to their favorite songs! We provide the same quality instruction that you would receive at a professional dance school. All of our instructors are energetic dance instructors and performers and love sharing their skills with children. Students will learn steps to keep them busy all year. Dance is such a great outlet for children. Not only will they increase their strength, flexibility and motor skills but they get to experience what they are capable of. This increases their self-esteem!  Let’s not forget to mention coming together as a group and moving as a team is fun and rewarding! Every session ends with a performance for families.

All this with the ease of a community program! You can take just one session or several! The choice is yours. It is so easy for your child to try out a class and then decide if it is something they want to pursue. We feel honored to start your child’s growth in the arts.

All classes and camps are held at the Maplewood Community Center.  It is conveniently located at 2100 White Bear Ave in Maplewood.
