  • I know the local college here offers mommy & me dance classes from age 2-4 (the mommys don't dance, they are just their to help out and watch their child).

  • Pre-dance and creative movement can begin as early as 2, but actual formal ballet training shouldn't begin until about age 8 or so. But the predance classes will acquaint the child with some of the movements and the vocabulary, so it's a great idea for toddlers!
