Coming in 2017! CRPR is partnering with Bitty Ballet to offer ballet classes for children ages 2.5 to 5 years old.  These 6 week classes are a wonderful stepping stone to encourage group participation, listening to an instructor and a true love of dance and movement for these developing souls. Simple ballet positions and moves also encourage physical activity and controlled body movements in toddlers.  For more information on Bitty Ballet please click here

Details including dates, times and fees will be
listed in the 2017 Winter/Spring Active Guide!
