Classes

 

Your child will experience dance in a friendly, positive, caring environment. Each student is treated with compassion and consideration from both teachers and classmates. Our small class sizes ensure the attention that each student deserves. We offer opportunities for the younger dancer, recreational dancer and the more serious dancer. Students are placed in age and level appropriate classes.
