  • I know that as far as ballet goes, she must be out of diapers and not have many accidents, if none at all. Call your local dance studio and check up with them. My husband was in martial arts, and the youngest he remembers is six year olds. Hope that helps!

  • 3 years is when they start LETTING them into the classes like this because of attention span, but another idea would be a mommy and me music class

  • Three is usually the youngest and then it depends on the child. I really doubt my daughter will be ready at 3 but other kids in our Mommy & Me classes will be. My daughter is just not ready for the "pay attention to the teacher, sit quietly in a circle" thing. And be aware - most classes for preschoolers want the parents OUT of the room during class. The parents are too big a distraction for the child.
