For students 18 months to 7 years old


Our Twirl Program is an open-enrollment program that offers dance instruction for students ages 2 through 7. Classes in the Twirl Program are divided into levels by age, which encourages each child to reach his or her highest potential. Inspire School of Ballet’s unique Twirl curriculum promotes creativity and imagination while ensuring a solid foundation of dance technique. Twirl classes are designed to progress toward the discipline and structure of a ballet class, but children may enroll in any classes that are appropriate for their age and dance experience.


Mini Twirl (18 months to 3yrs) is an exploration of dance through simple music and movement that allows the child to understand the structure of a dance class while still having the comfort of a parent in the room. Students will learn basic rhythmic and dance skills.  The class is open to any child/guardian relationship, and not restricted to Moms!


Snazzy Jazzy & Hippity Hop (3-5yrs) incorporates basic jazz and hip hop movement with age-appropriate songs and choreography. During this fun and upbeat class, students learn coordination, balance, and musicality. This class is a perfect compliment to any of our ballet-focused class to creating a well-rounded dancer! 


Twirl Lilac (3-5yrs) is a combination class that teaches the basics of both ballet and tap. Children will enhance their balance, poise, coordination, and kinesthetic awareness.  Twirl Lilac classes emphasize creative expression through movement in a structured, yet fun and imaginative environment—a perfect introduction to the magic of dance! The students will begin with tap shoes and then transition to the ballet portion of the class.


Twirl Aqua  (Age 5 by September 1st) this ballet-only class focuses completely on ballet principles using our Twirl curriculum. Students enjoy a variety of themes throughout the year as they learn all the basic foot and arm positions, French ballet terminology, and across the floor.

Fairytale Ballet  (Age 6 by September 1st) is a magical ballet-only class! In this class they build on the ballet principles learned in Twirl Aqua. Each week they work on ballet positions, French ballet terminology, beginning barre, center, and across the floor. Every class incorporates the classic ballets creating a well-rounded and engaging dance education.

Tap/Jazz Combo (6-9yrs)  Tap is one of the most traditional forms of dance using special shoes to create different rhythms, sounds & patterns. Tap is great for developing musicality and coordination skills. Jazz dance is based on ballet principles with each class consisting of a warm-up using isolated movements, across the floor progressions, and current choreography all set to age appropriate music. This class can be taken on its own or as an excellent supplemental class to ballet.
