“Dancing is a wonderful way for children to express their creativity,” said Kathy Blake, Artistic Director, “Children are young for such a short time and we are grateful to the New Hampshire parents who recognize that age-appropriate and fun dance programs are a healthy activity where movement and self-expression bring out joy in students.”
