Performance:

Many kids this age get nervous to perform in front of new people. So to begin they have a private performance. Each student will go into the dance room with just their family and the teacher to show some dance moves they've worked on and some of a dance they've learned. Then once each student had done that, they perform all together for everyone's parents/family.

"We love Cedar Hills Dance!! It is the highlight of our 3 year old's week, every week. In the beginning, our little boy had some social anxiety about getting dropped off, but Jacquel was so patient and kind. She worked with him and made him feel comfortable. Now he wants to go to dance class every day of the week! It's so much fun to see him come home and show off his new dance moves. We can't say enough how much we love Jacquel and Cedar Hills Dance!" -Clarrisa McMurry

Jacquel is great with the kids and works hard to help them to learn and have fun. I love that there are no hidden fees, no expensive costumes and the location is great. We will be sticking with Cedar Hills dance as long as we can.
