ZoomDance is action adventure story-telling movement classes, camps and parties.

Birthday Parties:

ZoomDance birthday parties are completely unique, lots of fun, and sure to be remembered for years to come! Your child chooses his or her favorite book and we'll custom design a themed party adventure around that story. The party is very high energy with lots of dancing, creative games and imagination. Parents generally schedule a 2 hour party, and ZoomDance will entertain the kids for about 80-90 minutes; Then they have time for food and cake, which you provide, as well as decorations and paper goods. We can come to you or you can book at the studio.


Classes are held in various locations around Center City.

ZoomDance: For 1.5-3 year old kids, this is a high energy class of dance, music, story-telling, imagination and fun! Over the course of the session, children will develop agility, coordination, rhythm, and balance through a dynamic range of actions. There is an emphasis on creativity and building confidence through songs, stories, and performance. Each week we will read a new story and then explore the movement and adventures of the characters. Kids have the opportunity to show off their favorite moves, invent characters, and try lots of new movement ideas. Grown-ups are encouraged to participate in this class with their small dancers.

Intermediate ZoomDance: For 3-6 year olds, this class has the same essence as the younger ZoomDance class, with lots of energy and focus on exploring new ideas. We will start to push the edges of dancing the spectrum from wild abandon to careful details. In addition to learning trickier "moves", we will start thinking of phrases and dances instead of only individual moves, and students will perform for each other in class. When acting out the story, our teachers will encourage students to offer their own ideas too. Grown-ups drop off their dancers for this one, and are invited in on the last day to see what we have been working on.

ZoomBallet: For kids ages 3-6 years, this class is an engaging, active, adventurous beginner ballet class to help young dancers discover the fun in dancing. We will work on ballet moves in a less rigid format than standard ballet classes. Focus will be on integrating ballet moves into whole-body dances and improvisations. Costumes are encouraged, but no specific attire is necessary. Ballerinas, tigers, princesses, superheroes, everyone is welcome!

Summer Camp: (Camps also available over Winter Break and Spring Break)

Located at 1624 South Street in Center City; Programming will include ZoomDance performance workshops, field trips, swimming, messy art projects, big group games, picnics, and playground time.
