Dorothy Keck Dancers
Dance instruction for toddlers, children, teens & adults

Mommy & Me

The perfect early dance program for students 18 months -2.5 years

The Dorothy Keck Mommy & Me program is designed to give both you and your child a joyful, nurturing experience. Parents are shown how to interact with their child to introduce creative movement and eye-hand coordination skills. The Instructor will also guide the parents through basic strengthening exercises and pre-tumbling skills. We will use many different props to keep your child engaged and use popular kid friendly music to convey the movements of the day to make learning playful and interesting for both the parent and child as we explore, rhythm, movement, strength, flexibility,  grace, interaction with others,  and of course FUN!

Other benefits include:

·        Creates family memories

·        Encourages social interaction between child and parent

·        Creates a bonding experience

·        Encourages an active, moving child!


  • Students must be at least 18 months of age
  • Students age 2.5 have the option of Mommy & Me or a traditional First Steps class(see Class Schedule)
  • Pacifiers, bottles, snacks,  and sippy cups will not be allowed in the dance room
  • A parent or adult is required to participate with the child each class session.
  • Ballet shoes and comfortable clothes for the student(no Wal-Mart, PayLess or Target dance shoes, please).
  • Comfortable, loose fitting clothes for the adult. Sneakers, or socks with grips. No flip-flops.
  • Please do not bring additional family members and cameras to the first 2 classes. Students need time to become acquainted to a new program and the studio surroundings. Additional family members and guests are welcome to watch after the first 2 classes of the session(lobby space permitting). We wish to create a quiet, stress-free environment for our young dancers.
