Shimmer & Shine Dance Class

(Age 2-4)

Are you looking for dance classes for your 2-4 year old? The Shimmer & Shine dance class is a 45 minute weekly class with dancers learning tap, ballet, and tumbling skills.

Being that Shimmer and Shine students are our little ones, these classes are about having fun, learning, and building confidence. These classes have a lot of movement, play and music and are so fun for your kids.

The benefits of starting dance classes at this age go beyond just learning to dance. At this age, your children are learning so many life skills while having fun. Dance classes at this age can help your child develop better social skills, practice how to follow instructions and learn in a class environment, can develop motors skills and get energy out, and helps our students build confidence in themselves as they master new skills and dance moves.

Evolve Dance Studio is located in Rockford, Michigan and we have students from all over the Grand Rapids area.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use the ages as a starting point to assess what class will be best for your child. If you have a 5 year old that is brand new to dance, and the Shimmer & Shine class seems like a better fit for their personality at this point, we are flexible with placement by age as long as it makes sense for your child.

Your child will need a leotard and tights, tap and ballet shoes. You can see local stores to purchase these from on our Studio Policies page. For dance classes, because your child is learning dancing and tumbling skills, we do not allow large tutus or extra fluffy leotards or skirts.

During class, our studios have a TV in the lobby area so you can watch what’s happening, but your children don’t see you. At first, this might seem hard (especially if you have a child who has separation anxiety) but we promise as soon as class starts and the fun begins, all of the kids start having fun.


“We send our daughter to Evolve because they really focus on her as an individual, capitalizing on her strengths, but challenging her to try new styles, moves, and get her out of her comfort zone. She is not a number, but an integral part of the team. The teachers really care about her as a person and not just as another dancer. I love watching her grow and enjoy what she does every day.”

– Hope & Tony Cullen (parents)

“Belief in building the dancers physically and emotionally. Every dancer should leave with a better sense of self.
This is the core of their business.”

– Sarah Field-Draper (parent)
