Ages 3-6

From March 14-25, little dancers ages 3-6 can join Goh Ballet for a dance adventure in our Magic Treehouse Spring Break Program. Let your imagination be dazzled with movements, music & story magic as our little dancers will be transported by themes and music to celebrate dance, art & nature through characterization. Every day we will explore whimsical creativity in the branches of the Treehouse, from making colourful crafts to dancing around the enchanted studios.

Dancers will participate in two weeks of imaginative activities, each week with its own special theme.
