When it comes to finding dance lessons for little ones where class sizes are not too daunting, and a low teacher-to-child ratio is the name of the game, we’ve found just the place… Dance at the Difference! We checked it out for ourselves and crowned this super duper boutique dance studio as our Find of the Week! It runs fun-packed parent-and-child classes for tiny tots from seven months to five years, and then some pretty cool drop-off picks for older kids age five to seven years, including tap dancing, ballet and hip-hop (some classes might be paused due to covid-19 restrictions, so do check the school’s website regularly!). Psst: it also runs some pretty cool classes for grownups which are not only great for getting fit, but are a great way to meet new friends while having a ton of fun. Win, win!
