Preschool Dance Classes

Small Fry Dance Club prides itself on offering age appropriate classes to preschool age students. We have our own proprietary curriculum developed and improved upon over the past decade. Many of our teachers have both dance degrees and child development backgrounds. Your classes will not be led by a teen or teacher’s aide. We believe preschool classes are the foundation for a lifetime of dance and should be treated appropriately. Our approach allows us to better prepare your dancer for our school age program, Principal Creative & Performing Arts.

Our dance studio is conveniently located in central San Mateo, Ca. Close to highway 92 on El Camino Real. Easily accessible from most Peninsula cities. 

We teach at multiple preschools in the Bay Area. Children that are enrolled at those preschool centers are eligible to attend.
