We like the Baby Sensory program so much because it is a natural feeder into dance lessons and the curriculum is truly one of a kind.

Dance Academy USA proudly announces that it has become the very first company to offer the Baby Sensory curriculum in California. Hundreds of companies and individuals in California competed for the opportunity to be the first to offer this program. DAU teachers Jenni Tibbils and Jane Carter were officially trained and certified approximately two weeks ago and are now going through an internal training process that includes both their administrative and teaching staff.

Dance Academy USA Co-founder, Jane Carter said that DAU was selected to be the first to launch this product in California “because of our stability, leadership team, respect in the community, our commitment to excellent, expertise in teaching, passion for the product and our proven ability to make things happen." She continued: “Needless to say, we are super excited about the great things that this product is doing for kids - in this case babies!”

Those interested in the program should call or email Dance Academy USA to reserve their spot. Parents will receive a phone call when classes are ready to launch. DAU anticipates that the first class may be held as early as March 29. “It's important that this product is launched with precision - as such, for now, Jane Carter and Jenni Tibbils will be co-teaching the first classes and training all subsequent teachers as they become certified” said DAU Operations Manager Kim Barrett. “We like the Baby Sensory program so much because it is a natural feeder into dance lessons and the curriculum is truly one of a kind - it's the first California State approved Complete curriculum specifically designed for Baby/Infant from Birth to 13 months ever to make it through Sacramento” Barrett said.

The Baby Sensory program aims to build up a vocabulary of sensory experiences (e.g. visual, auditory and tactile), to enhance physical contact between parent and baby and to promote the development of speech through the use of sign language, music, song and puppets. Activities vary weekly but all are excellent for developing physical, social and emotional, and language skills, co-ordination, awareness of the world, a love of music and the concentration needed for further development.
