Position Yourself at Positions: 4 Things That Make Us Unique

As parents who want the best for your kids, we know you have a lot of options to choose from! There are tons of dance studios and extracurricular activities that all offer different programs, many of which intrigue your children and make them light up with excitement!

So how do you choose? We know it can be overwhelming. Today on the blog we are sharing the 4 reasons that Positions Dance Studio is a step above the rest! Read on to find out what makes Positions the best dance studio in Babylon!

1. Dance Abilities

This one is by far one of our most treasured parts of the studio! At Positions, we believe dance is for EVERYONE! Which is why we love offering our Dance Abilities class every fall. This class is specifically tailored for students ages 7-adult with Down Syndrome, Autism and other developmental disabilities. 

At Dance Abilities, we LOVE seeing students gain confidence through dance. We see physical, mental, and emotional growth each week as coordination improves and our students make new friends with other dancers. Head over to our website to learn more about this class that we hold near and dear to heart. Dance has the power to bring people together, and Positions Dance Studio makes that happen. 

2. Community Connection

Positions Dance Studio takes great pride in staying connected with our community. We love Babylon village and the people that make it so special… ESPECIALLY all of our dance families. From community yoga classes, Babylon Block Parties, and giving back to the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition in February, PDS wants everyone in Babylon to feel welcome at our studio. Sharing dance with our community is something we value that sets our studio apart from the rest! 

3. Unique, Year-Round Performance Opportunities

We couldn’t leave our Spring Musical/Ballet and December Nutcracker off this list! Each Spring, our Broadway Bound students put together a fabulous musical while our Ballet Enrichment students perform in a stunning ballet. We put these two productions together to create one day of phenomenal performances. In addition, we are excited to begin working on our Nutcracker production that will be happening this December! Many of our staff members at Positions treasure these special performances and WISH we had the same opportunities while growing up as a young dancer. 

Putting on a large production requires TONS of hard-work and dedication from the dancers. It teaches kids important life lessons (check out our past blog post about the 5 benefits of performing) and creates memories that kids will cherish for a lifetime. We have big things happening each year at PDS, and we will never stop offering performance opportunities to our young dancers! 

4. Performance Team

In addition to our weekly dance classes, Positions Dance Studio is home to 4 fabulous performance teams. By audition only, dancers are separated by age and ability, rehearsing each week and learning fun, new choreography. After perfecting these dances, our kids get the opportunity to travel and perform in the community. This past year, our performance team performed at Disney as well as half-time shows for sporting events. We LOVE watching our kids hit the stage! 

Writing this blog gave us ALL the feels… we can’t hide it! We LOVE our studio and what it brings to our dance families. Bringing these unique opportunities to kids in Babylon brings us SO much joy. It is why we do what we do!

We all want our kids to find their passion. You know, the thing that makes them light up with excitement. One of the best ways to do that is to get out there and let them try a variety of activities. For this month’s blog post, we thought it would be fun to put together a list of Babylon activities so you can explore some new and fresh ideas with your child.

Our community is so lucky to have such amazing options for kids. From sports all the way to the arts there is something for everyone in Babylon, NY. Going through all the options was so fun, we were definitely inspired to get out there and try something new for ourselves. To help you sort through the options, we have selected our FAVORITE activities for your child to try this fall.

  • Positions Dance Studio: OK, we may be a little bit biased here but we LOVE LOVE LOVE Positions! There are so many fun classes to choose from. We have dance (ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, modern, tumbling, mommy and me, acro, etc.) classes for students ages 18 months-adult. Our classes are designed to foster self-confidence in our dancers and we are proud to provide dance classes to ALL in a family-friendly environment. We know your child will enjoy taking classes at Positions and we are currently accepting enrollment for our fall session. Visit our website to view our schedule and learn more about our programs.

  • Argyle Theatre: This historic theater has been newly renovated and we are so excited it is back in action! They are starting their Children’s Theater off with “The Wizard Of Oz” this fall and it is sure to be a huge success! If your child loves playing dress up and putting on shows in the living room, they will love taking a theater class.

  • ArtSea Studio: If your child likes drawing and painting, they will sure love taking a class at ArtSea Studio. They have an amazing lineup of art classes for children (pre-K through 12th grade). We just love the Parent/Child Nights that they offer once or twice a month. What a great way to spend some time with your child!

  • South Shore Paddleboards: Ok, how cool would your child feel after getting the hang of a paddleboard?! We felt pretty amazing the first time we did it so we are POSITIVE they will too. South Shore Paddleboards has classes and rentals for the whole family. Learning a new skill with your child will bring you closer together and teach them that you are never too “old” to try something new.

  • Bubble Boutique and Learning Center: This is your one-stop shop for apparel, gifts, and unique toys. The best part? They have children's classes too! They specialize in classes for babies-12 years old. If you have a crafter, you NEED to check them out! Right now their website is undergoing changes, the best way to check them out is via their Facebook page.

Well, there you have it. A jam-packed list of super fun activities to check out with your child. Isn’t Babylon Village such an amazing place to be a kid?! We are going to let you in on a secret. It’s a great place to be an adult too. All of these businesses have classes and workshops for adults as well. Now you can be free to explore YOUR passion along with your child.

Do you have a fun, share-worthy activity that didn’t make the list? Give them a shout out in the comments, our families would LOVE to know what your kids love to do in the community.
