Tiny Dancers, located in the heart of Fairfax City, has been voted Best Ballet or Dance Studio in the July 2012 issue of Washington Family Magazine. This is the third year in a row that the dance studio has been selected for this honor. In addition, the company was named among the Best in Virginia in Virginia Living Magazine earlier this year and had previously been named "Best of NoVA" in Northern Virginia Magazine. Commenting on the most recent award, studio manager Beth Melton said, "We live to dance and love working with the kids, so for us, teaching dance is the best job there is. We're thrilled by the support of our customers."

The curriculum is designed especially for young children ages 2-12. It uses age-appropriate choreography and emphasizes technical excellence in a fun and nurturing environment. By introducing dancers to the basics of ballet, tap and jazz using well-known fairy tales and hundreds of costumes and props, students are encouraged to learn through creative self-expression and exploration.

In addition to the studio in Fairfax, Tiny Dancers has locations in Alexandria and Gainesville. Information is available at www.tinydancers.com or by calling HYPERLINK "tel:703-754-2210"703-754-2210.
