Family dance class with toddler

I'm looking for a dance or movement class that I can take with my 2 year old. Something that allows us to move and play together with other people doing the same. It could be kid-focused or no, so long as she is welcome! We have been to Soul Sanctuary at Ashkenaz but unfortunately it's right at nap time. I checked Luna Dance Institute but it doesn't look like they have any toddler sessions in the fall. Any other suggestions?

Shawl Anderson Dance Center has classes for very young children. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen toddler-parent classes there and the studio is a happy place for dancers young and older. 

I just signed my 3yo for the "We Dance Together" summer session at the Berkeley Ballet Theater.  First class this Friday so I can't tell you how we like yet, but may be an option to consider?

Maybe check out Berkeley Ballet Theatre for their We Dance Together parent/toddler class? When I spoke to them they explained it was more about movement and play rather than ballet instruction. We went to Tutu School and did their Tutu Toddlers class (parent participation) and it was also good but has more ballet focus.

Shawl Anderson Dance Center has a great parent & toddler class called Dance with Me. https://www.shawl-anderson.org/dance-with-me

Not dance, but Yama Kids Yoga in Berkeley (Elmwood) is really fun with a 2 year old! They have weekday classes for toddlers in the morning, and they do a family yoga class (for kids of all ages) on the weekend as well. https://www.yamakidsyoga.com/schedule-and-pricing

I have seen the Tutu School on Solano, I know they have classes for toddler. I know nothing about it, but I've seen it.

We go to Kids N Dance for my 2.5 yr old and it's a good blend of play and dance. The first half hour is free play in their kid gym and the second half hour is teach led dancing.

check out Dance with Me at Shawl Anderson. I did morning sessions with my two year old last year and it was really fun. 

Luna also does toddler/preschool dance classes with Oakland Public Library.  They are free and awesome!
