Our Programs – Bright Minds Happy Feet

Our Programs

Located in the Historic Site of The Forks Market, Bright Minds Happy Feet is nestled in with a classroom space for learning and exploration and a separate professionally outfitted dance studio for dance class and active play. 


Our Available Programs 2023-2024

Mondays & Wednesdays – “SHINING STARS” 9:00am-12:00pm

Tuesdays & Thursdays – “TIPPY TOES” 9:30am-12:00pm


Both Shining Stars and Tippy Toes programs provide the same arts focused curriculum with dance, music and art. All ages are welcome to attend both programs and we look forward to working with the 2019 children to prepare them for kindergarten in special pre-k time! Programs will have the same theme focus but will not be the same and students could easily be enrolled in both and have unique experiences.

*NEW THIS YEAR* Fantastic Fridays are an optional add-on for either Shining Stars OR Tippy Toes. We are excited to offer this additional day to our students at a discounted rate. For those who don’t want to commit to Fantastic Fridays, it will also be open for drop-in to our students! This is a great option for caregivers that need a morning to run some errands, complete a quick project or get some ‘me time’!

Students for registered programs must be 2.5 years by September 1st, 2023. Drop-in students for Fantastic Fridays must be at least 3 years old by September 2023.

Daily Activities


All students will get the opportunity to perform in Royal Dance’s End of Year Recital! Your child will be attending dance class every time they come to Bright Minds Happy Feet, so they will be stage ready in no time. Performing is a great experience for children as they learn about stage etiquette, handling nervous energy, teamwork and the complete JOY that comes from completing a show!  Costume will need to be purchased to participate.  

How do we keep guardians in the loop?


We are taking the guessing out of what to wear! With art, play and dance on the menu we have curated a small uniform selection for students to select from. You can choose from a t-shirt or sweater and pair it with whatever you want! Dance footwear is required. Uniform is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED but we understand that life happens and sometimes they are in the wash!
