most dancers will tell you to start with ballet classes. (and come on, what little girl isn't awed by ballerinas)

Usually young children (ages 5-7) are offered combination classes at most dance schools (usually 1/2 hr ballet and 1/2 hr tap) so that they don't get bored. I can tell you that nowadays though, kids prefer a more fun class like hip/hop as it is more "today."
