My daugther is 1.5 year old but she is very intrested in dancing. Can anyone tell me what is teh correct age for child to start a dance class. Although i m not thinking her to put in dance class immediatly but just wanted to knoe when she can start because  she is very happy if she has to dance or if she sees somebody dancig. she catches the steps very fast at this age only. When she had not learnet to walk that time she was dancing with her hands. she loves music,songs and dance.

Also please tell me what kind of dance should be the starting point for small kids

thanks - Barkha

Hi Barkha,

My daughter too loves dancing. She is now 3.2 . Most of the classical dance gurus take children above 5yrs. They say it is the right age. You can however take her to a nearby activity centre when she turns 2 or 2.5 to see other children dance. If she is exceptionally talented, she will be trained. My friend's daughter was trained in Bharatnatyam from the age of 3   .  Better wait till she turns 3 alteast to start classical dance. You can always encourage her to dance free style . Children love it.

Thanks micky. ya she dance in free style and she loves it. She loves if i dance with her. But the problem is i do not knwo dancing at all so i just move my hands and legs with her and she catches all the steps very fast.

i heard that many play schools also teaches dancing like little einsteins play group is kondapur. i visited the place it seems to be good and also heard good reviews about. should i place her in a play group now or should i wait till she becomes 2
