Kids build confidence and community through Asheville’s most innovative kids dance class! There will be a fun warm up and great stretching sequence to frame the class. Within the class, your student will work through a comprehensive dance curriculum that draws on modern dance and some ballet basics as well. Kids will also have time to create their own choreography and build their skills in improvisation.

This is the class for kids who want to dance, but don’t need to be burdened with a focus on looking a certain way or competing against others. Your dancer may wear any dance clothing and soft soled dance shoes they would like.  Bare feet are fine too!   

We highly recommend this class for:
  • Kids who love to or are interested in dance and want a class without competition or a focus on looks.
  • Kids who would benefit from a welcoming group activity with great music.
  • ANY of our martial arts students, because the work we do in dance class – to build coordination, memorization skills and confidence, as well as strengthening and stretching our bodies – will really benefit your martial arts training!

When getting started with, you can actually
try a free class in any and all of our movement programs!


My name is Brit and I am the kids dance teacher at Budo Mountain!  As a child, I always found myself inspired by music, daydreaming about dance routines and making up choreography in my bedroom. I began dance lessons at the age of 9 and started assisting in dance classes at 16. I have 8 years of experience in teaching dance (jazz, contemporary, ballet, creative movement).  Dance has always been a major passion of mine and I couldn’t be happier and more honored to share that with my students!  I am also the Assistant Teacher in our after school programing and martial arts classes here at Budo.  I absolutely love working with children.  They always keep me present and teach me lessons everyday. I strongly believe in keeping a positive and compassionate environment in which the students can thrive!
