About this pro

Tippi Toes Dance® has been providing a unique program of dance to children 18 months to 12 years for over 18 years. Our upbeat classes are based on original music that we write and record specifically for ages 2-9 years! Our classes cover the basics of ballet, tap, and jazz and provide a positive environment for learning and FUN! We offer two performance opportunities each year which is a great confidence builder - even if they just put their toe on stage we are so proud of all of our dancers! Our underlying mission is nutrition so we will keep your children in constant motion while dancing to the beat!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We welcome students to join our classes at any time of year. The way we teach classes using the "Teach By Doing" concept truly helps our students jump into class and follow along right away and have FUN while doing it!  Your student will come home singing Tippi Toes® songs and naming steps soon after they start!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Our current teaching staff is comprised of individuals with professional dance, acting, education and performance experience. We hire teachers who have a wealth of experience working with children, who are loving and kind, and most of our enthusiastic and engaging! All of our teachers are background checked including additional screening from school systems in the area and Catholic School VIRTUS certified. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Prices vary by location as we teach in preschools, elementary schools and recreation centers in 5 different counties. However, the majority of our public location classes (Hill Center, Saffron Dance, Mind the Mat Pilates and Yoga, Crofton Jazzercise) are standard monthly tuition with a one-time registration fee ($35). We do have 2 recitals a year which involve costumes and have a participation fee associated with them but friends and family can attend for free with no tickets required. 

What types of students have you worked with?

We have worked with all kinds of students that are 18 months to 12 years old. Our mascot is Tippi the Turtle because we believe that anyone can dance even a turtle with a heavy shell on her back! We want all students to have an opportunity to build self esteem and self confidence through a love of dance!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Try a class!  All of our classes include a free trial day and coming and participating is the best way to see if it is a good fit for your child. Do remember that our littlest dancers usually take a few classes to get into the routine of coming and understanding what it means to participate. Usually after 4-6 classes, we really see them come out of their shells :)
