LITTLE BARN SPRING AND SUMMER SCHEDULE
HOW WE TEACH DANCE AND PERFORMING ARTS AT LITTLE BARN?
"I would like to express my excitement for the coming spring and summer season. It is truly a dream come true!
Hopefully we will have more freedom this year and this will be the final scene as we bring the curtain down on this pandemic.
Our beautiful summer stock barn (for now it is a tent 😉) is going up April 1st.
My idea to create a magical Musical Theatre program in the fresh air of the Hamptons is now a reality. This program supports talented, young artists from New York City, and gives a space for our children to make use of the long, lazy, summer days while creating shows and learning to dance and sing with beautiful musical arrangements.
I’m so proud of our sparkling and adorable little students, our Little Barn team, and our lovely teachers!" - Kim Eilian (founder of Little Barn)
Kim - our founder - has developed a method of teaching in her 30 years teaching career in NYC and tri-state area that inspires children from every walk/dance of life - because dance is actually just fancy walking!
One of Kim's specialties is teaching very young children, giving first year students the building blocks of dance and tap curriculum and the love of dance and theatre. This also includes listening to the music, feeling and following the beat and always telling a story.
Kim teaches her team to find ways to put the steps of the day in every dance and activity. We repeat these steps until the kids are ready for something new. As a team, we work like an improvisation group and every teacher adds to the dynamic and creativity of the dances and the class. We save singing and acting games for the end of class, which the LB (Little Barn) dancers Love!
Our motto is patience, learning with repetition with lots of love and fun to accomplish and build the child’s dance language and skills, with a solid dance curriculum in a fun and approachable way.

OUR MISSION IN THE HAMPTONS
Our goal is to continue to build our Little Barn Dance and Musical Theatre program but ultimately build a spacious and charming dance barn and a theatre space for the residents, artists and families that summer in the Hamptons.
This barn will be functional and playful - with wide open doors in a charming summer stock barn / studio / performance space for summer months.
Below the barn will be gorgeous Lincoln Center style studios with floor to ceiling windows, heated floors, mirrors, a piano and sound system.
Little Barn will be a beautiful Hamptons destination for children, teachers, mentors, working and resident artists and scholarship programs, so no child is ever left behind.
Get in touch if you'd like to support or be part of our mission.
