What if we told you there was a way for you to get in a workout AND have some fun with your baby?

What could be better than dancing through the weekend?! Choose from a Ballet & Tap or Ballet & Hip Hop combo class or Tap for older dancers.

AND your kiddies will have the rest of the weekend to show off their cool new moves, and maybe even put on a show!
And sometimes, kids need to just play! This awesome play space, with two locations to choose from, has open play all weekend long. The gym features therapy equipment, an arts & crafts area, a calming room, and more. There’s even a trampoline and zip line!

Looking to find a little family zen? Try out a Family Zooga class, offered on weekends at both locations, to bend, stretch, and bond together. Other great options include busting a move at Kangaroo Hop, where little pop stars will sing and dance to modern and old school hip hop and Little Flamingos Dance, featuring a unique blend of yoga, storytelling, props, and imaginative dance.
