Classes

  Our program is divided by age groups.  Our goal is to provide a fun and nurturing atmosphere while leaving time for students to enjoy their other activities.  Developing teamwork, discipline, self-confidence and creativity will make your child a success both in and out of the studio.  Note:  students will not be held back because of their age, providing the level they are moving into is appropriate both in movement and music. Advancement out of age group is at the discretion of the Artistic Director.


 The Adult Program is designed to provide the training needed for students interested in pursuing dance at a professional or college level and adults looking for exercise, fitness and a lot of fun.  The Adult Program is divided into two parts, lilac and purple.  The lilac adult class is open to all students 18 and older.  Only those who are technically qualified will be considered for the purple level adult class.
