BERNARDSVILLE, NJ – Dance Local, a new dance school offering creative dance education for children, is officially opening its “doors” on February 22. 

After 15 years of teaching dance in public schools and private studios, and parenting two young children through a global pandemic, local mom and teacher Meg Regan decided to create Dance Local. “Our children need a space to be engaged in physical, imaginative, creative play, and they are craving connection and collaboration with friends, now more than ever,” explained Regan.

Using extensive experience and training in dance education, Dance Local classes have been designed to be developmentally and physically appropriate for children, and focus on building social-emotional skills through dance.

Although the lessons will initially be delivered virtually, Regan says that Dance Local is not more screen time. “You can trust that your children and their friends will be immersed in creative dance education with a certified teacher,” she explained. “It’s a moment of self-care for the whole family, making the pandemic parenting load just a little lighter. And most importantly, it’s really fun for the children!”

The first winter session of classes will run from February 22 - March 27, 2021 and are offered at a variety of times throughout the week.

Programs for children ages two & up include: 

  • Shapes & Colors

  • Animal Adventures

  • Winter Fun

  • ABCs & 123s

Programs for children ages four & up include:

  • Winter Wonderland

  • Dance Games

  • Dancing Dr. Seuss

  • Trolls Movie Dance

Dance Local also provides custom virtual dance pods or parties. Some ideas include Holiday Celebrations, Children’s Birthday Party, Family Dance Party Night and Class/Team Bonding.

“If the pandemic has taught me anything, it’s the importance of a supportive and flexible community. Dance Local is here to provide safe, convenient dance education - both virtual and in person - as we continue to evolve into our new ways of teaching and learning.”
