Small Fry Dance Club

Small Fry Dance Club offers public children's dance classes at our studio in Foster City, and private classes in preschools throughout the Bay Area. Our classes are designed for kids age 18 months to 7 years. We teach a variety of tap, jazz, ballet, creative movement, hip hop, and more.

SFDC was founded by Jana Chapeton in early 2007. We have had 2500 plus students come through the program at over 20 different private preschools and our public studio in Foster City, CA. All of our teachers have extensive education and experience teaching dance, performance, and motor skills to preschool and school age students. We offer kids exposure to different dance disciplines while helping to develop their confidence and body awareness.

Mission Statement

SFDC's Mission

Small Fry Dance Club's mission is to instill a love of dance in children, their family, and their community. Each dancer will be challenged to strengthen their body awareness, spatial awareness, flexibility, balance, creativity, movement technique, and appreciation of the performing and creative arts. We want dancers to crave movement for physical fitness, artistic outlet, and even emotional comfort. Our goal is to provide age-appropriate movement classes and performance opportunities for toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children. No matter the degree of each child's dance goals, discovering movement should be nothing but empowering. Dance starts here!

Free Shoe Exchange

Donate or Borrow Shoes - FREE!

Small Fry Dance Club has setup a Shoe Exchange Program. This means that ANY student enrolled in our classes can request a free pair of dance shoes. The shoes we carry are gently worn and given to us by students that have outgrown their dance shoes, or have dropped from the program. We can't guarantee we will have your size in our inventory, but if we have a pair that fits they are yours.

If you would like to donate your dance shoes, old or new, or to request a pair of shoes, please email us. We will check our inventory and get back to you soon.

Birthday Parties!

Want to have your party with your favorite teacher?

Small Fry Dance Club offers private birthday parties for preschool age children.
