About the Company: Twinkle Star Dance is comprised of three different modules for training recreational dancers ages 2-11. They are Curriculum, Choreography, and On-going Support/Training. Curriculum videos are streaming videos that show the actual class content; what goes into a 2-3 year old Twinkle Babies class, for example. Choreography videos show recital choreography appropriate for the age group and skill level. With Twinkle Star Dance a dance instructor who has never taught younger dancers will be able to confidently give an exciting and entertaining class that children love. These classes will become the backbone of any studio and ensure that the studio continues to grow their recreational program.
