Dance Studio in San Mateo

Our San Mateo dance studio is open to the public. Classes run 7 days per week. Age ranges from 18 months to 5 years. Music & Movement, Dance & Performance, and Brazilian Drum & Song classes are available. FREE TRIAL FOR NEW STUDENTS

On-site Extra Curricular Program

Can’t come to our studio? Check with your preschool Director if our award winning classes are taught at your school. Over the past ten years Small Fry Dance Club has worked with over 25 Bay Area Preschools and Day Care Centers. 

Have an Older Dancer?

If your dancer is 5 years of age or older they may be ready for a new challenge. We created Principal Creative & Performing Arts as the next step in your child’s dance education. Pick from ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and lots more!


Small Fry Dance Club prides itself on offering age appropriate classes to preschool age students. We have our own proprietary curriculum developed by our own staff over the past 10 years. Unlike most dance schools, our preschool classes are taught by teachers with dance degrees and early childhood education backgrounds. This allows us to better prepare your dancer when they move up to Principal Creative & Performing Arts.

MUSIC & MOVEMENT: 18 Months to 2 Years
BRAZILIAN DRUM & SONG: 2-4 Years (Separate Program)


The highlights of our year are always our performances in June and December. It’s your dancer’s chance to show you what they have been working on in class the previous 6 months. It’s the cutest event of the year!

For many of our dancers it will also be their first stage experience. We have created a stress free experience for both you and your dancer. The recitals are designed for the preschool age group. They are short, 30 min performances, where your dancer will be on stage the majority of the show. You will get to see them work through our class warm up, isolations, specific techniques taught during the season, and finally their featured dance, which is the choreography portion of class. 

Dancers will also be exposed to a guest dancer from our Principal Arts program that will perform near the end of each show. It’s their chance to become the audience, and see dancers who were Small Fry’s themselves not long ago.
