I know that it might be a little drive from where you are but Power House of Dallas is an awesome place! I take my 2 year old and she LOVES it! They do a combination of all forms of dance so it offers a lot of variety. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Not sure if you are interested in dance/gymnastics for excercise or development. For the most part, starting dance at 3 will not make or break your daughter. Girls that truly have an interest will be fine starting around 5 yrs old. All that being said, if you are ok with beginning "shuttling" your child to dance beginning at the age of 3, go for it. As far as recommendations, it depends on what you are trying to do. Classical ballet studios, Tuzer and Chamberlain. Other ballet studios that Miss Melba's and Toby's school of dance. Personally, I am a classical ballet girl but it really is up to your own preference and what your overall goal.

My daughter started ballet when she was 2 1/2 at Arabesque Studio of Dance on beltline and coit. It was great for kids that age. As she got older I moved her to a more high power place but, for that age it was cute and just right! They offer a variety of classes for your age group.
