Blueberries was born out of a passion for dance and for sharing this with our young children.
‘I want everyone’s first dance, music and drama experience to be a positive one, that creates an ongoing passion for the arts.’ Julie Scheer
Designed for children aged 21 months to 5 years of age, Blueberries gives your child a fun, engaging and all-rounded dance foundation through its unique blend of modern dance tuition with music and drama. Our classes are specially designed to develop skills in rhythm, coordination, strength, and flexibility in movement. A major focus at Blueberries is to nurture and strengthen each child’s confidence and self-esteem.
Preschool-aged children require stimulation in many formats and this is what differentiates a Blueberry class from an ordinary dance class.
At Blueberries, we teach three styles of dance: Jazz, Ballet & Funk, and yoga-lates (a combination of yoga and pilates especially designed for children). We teach the use of musical instruments, musical rhythms, and singing, and we also encourage self-expression through dramatic play and imagination.
We understand that as parents, these precious moments where your child is accomplishing new skills are the most beautiful times to witness. This is why we designed Blueberries to be a parent-toddler program where parents stay in the class and participate with their children.
When it’s time for our little Blueberries, to go to school they can continue on to our Junior Classes. The emphasis in our Junior Classes is still on having lots of fun while learning the fundamentals of dance. Great for keeping kids active!

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be…”
Blueberries is our flagship class. Started in November 2005 from big dreams and bigger determination, our Blueberries classes started multiplying at a dizzying rate from popular demand. And as our little dancers got bigger, so did our dance school.
Dance gives your child skills for Life, and friends for life.
Today, many of our original Blueberries are still dancing their hearts out at DC. They’ve grown up with each other, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
