What We Do

Our program is designed to be a survey style class where dancers will get to experience a variety of dance styles. Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, and Tap are the 5 types of dance we rotate through, one every 6 months. This is a great way to build a foundation and learn which styles your dancer likes before moving up to our PCPA program.

Why You Should Dance Here

We have created a welcoming, friendly, and supportive community of dancers, parents, and teachers. Many of our dancers started in Small Fry at 18 months of age, and are still dancing with us through our PCPA program as teens. We are a large studio, with a small family feel. It truly is a wonderful studio for your dancer to grow, develop, and explore their talents.


Small Fry Dance Club got it’s start in preschool classrooms across the Bay Area. We are still traveling to preschools on a weekly basis and teach students from San Francisco to San Jose. If you are a preschool director looking for to add to your extra curricular offerings, or a parent that would like to recommend us, we would love to talk to you! We can work with smaller independent preschools and large corporate partners alike.
