Mommy and Me

Miami City Ballet School offers an exciting new way for children ages 3 and 4 and their parents to have fun together while introducing the child to the very beginning steps in dance! A new Mommy and Me Music and Movement Class will be held on Thursdays from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., beginning tomorrow (September 10). To enroll or for more information call (305) 929-7007 or email

Mommy and Me instructor Jeanne Elser Smith knows both dance and small children — she’s a former dancer at the Kansas City Ballet and Pennsylvania Ballet, has taught dance at the Massachusetts Youth Ballet, has a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and has taught first grade for several years. We caught up with Jeanne and her adorable daughter Abby for a taste of Mommy and Me Music and Movement.
