Feeling like your Broadway Baby is ready for the next step? Then this class is just for you! Broadway Mini-Stars uses the magic of musical theater to ease the transition from toddler to preschooler with a gentle separation approach that will have your little one saying “so long farewell” in no time. Developed by a professional performer turned child development specialist, Mini-Stars classes are taught by a team of professional teaching artists and include movement, music, Bubble Intermission, and drama activities inspired by the Broadway show of the week. Best of all? Each semester culminates with an Open House for family and friends where Mini-Stars get to share everything they've been working on throughout the semester.
