New Mommy & Me Class – Next Saturday at Mahasti in Hamilton

Mommy & Me - ages 4 & up!

This is a choreography class meant for children aged 4 and up.  It’s a great way to spend time together and try something new.  There’s no need to be a great dancer or have previous experience.

This class has an optional performance date Saturday December 17th at 7PM.  I try to keep costumes as simple and affordable as possible, often dancers already have the pieces they need at home.  Our last costume was just all black clothing with a hipscarf provided by me.
