We want our students to develop an appreciation and love for dance. Whether as a form of exercise and self-expression or taken to a competitive level, we teach foundations and techniques to support the mind, body and soul of each child.

Classes offered include:
Creative Movement – Ages 2.5-4
This exciting fun-filled preschool program blends the magic of childhood imagination with movement and the underlying principles of dance. With imaginations fully engaged, preschoolers use scarves, bean bags, ribbons and more as they are introduced to dance elements and movement fundamentals. Children also work on body control, listening skills, balance and coordination.
Ballet/Jazz – Ages 8 and up
A combination class consisting of 30 minutes of ballet and 30 minutes of jazz. Combine a strong foundation of ballet with jazz! Jazz dance uses sharp and fluid movements to create a visually technical style of dance. Body isolations, stretching, turning, and leaping are just some elements taught in the jazz combo class.
Ballet/Tap – Ages 4-7, 8 and up
A combination class consisting of 30 minutes of ballet and 30 minutes of tap. This class is a great introduction to rhythm and tempo in tap and offers an introduction to a solid foundation in ballet. Not only does this class offer a strong foundation for both tap and ballet styles of dance but also helps develop coordination, flexibility, and musicality.
Learn combinations and fun – age appropriate – dances including both jazz and hip hop styles!
Contemporary & jazz dance is built upon ballet technique for the beg-intermediate level dancers.
Leaps & Turns are an important component in every dancer’s repertoire and will enhance all dance styles. Our Leaps & Turns class focuses on the most basic of turns (chaine, pique, pirouette) through the advanced turns (attitude, arabesque, coupé, fouetté, multiple pirouettes) and variations of all of the above. Leaps & Turns also progresses from basic to advanced leaps and jumps. The student’s goal is to execute a series of complicated turn or leap patterns technically correct and safely.
