Dance Classes

The goal of our dance program is to encourage individuality, creativity and a love of dance. Our program focuses on building strong technique as a foundation for becoming a well-rounded dancer who is proficient in various styles.

The majority of our dance classes are offered as part of our "Full Year," 35-week program. This concludes with an end-of-the-year recital as an opportunity for dancers to showcase what they have learned throughout the year.

We do offer a few classes as "Session Only" that coincide with the fall, winter, spring and summer seasons. 

Check out below for descriptions on all of our class offerings. We're sure you will find something fun 'n rewarding!
