As a parent of four kids, a one and four year old amongst others having a handy list with links to some of the best online toddler and preschooler dance lessons can be a lifesaver. Not sure which one to choose? Being free — not many of the following resources are dance lessons in the traditional sense.

How does dance benefit toddlers?
The Baby Dance is a drama film produced by Showtime about adoption. It was written and directed by Jane Anderson , based on her play, with Stockard Channing and Laura Dern starring in the lead roles. Wanda LeFauve is a poor mother of four with an unemployed husband living in a trailer outside Shreveport, Louisiana. Pregnant again, she finds a newspaper ad placed by a couple hoping to adopt a newborn. Summoning up her courage, Wanda makes the telephone call.
Baby classes for ages 6 months to 3 years are offered on a drop-in or registration basis and invite a parent or caregiver to participate with the child. Urbanity aims to create a safe, nurturing environment in which parents and babies can explore movement, music, and the basic elements of dance. Our hands-on classes are designed to foster achievement of childhood developmental milestones, socialize children in both play and classroom settings, and continue bonding and support between caregivers and babies. Assisted by caregivers, crawling babies are introduced to a structured dance class environment. Music, instruments, and props introduce the basic elements of dance and developmental milestones. In this unique environment babies move from crawlers to walkers, developing basic motor skills, range of motion, and socialization. Assisted by caregivers, walking babies are introduced to a structured dance class environment. In this unique environment babies find greater physical coordination, developing basic motor skills, range of motion, and socialization. Assisted by caregivers, toddlers are exposed to a combination of ballet, modern, hip hop, and yoga to increase focus, musicality, balance, and coordination.
For some children, easy, graceful movements come naturally. They can be as instinctive as rolling over, crawling, and then walking. For every other baby, a little more encouragement and direction is needed.
