Tippi Toes

Classes are taught by Hannah Chow of Tippi Toes - Kansas City and will be held at the Leawood Community Center (lower level of City Hall). 

Toddler & Me Dance Classes - Ages 1.5 to 3 years
Toddler & Me dance classes are for children 18 months up to the age of 3 years. Music, movement, balance and the basic dance steps are introduced in a fun, friendly and positive manner. This type of class includes mom or dad or another loved one participating in the class along with the little dancer. Our teachers will keep the music and curriculum moving along while parents take an active role in encouraging, supporting and keeping the little dancer on track.

Our mission is to develop a love of dancing in children by creating a positive experience that promotes healthy living habits, helps build self-confidence, and a love for others.
