Dance
Our group dance lessons foster a sense of teamwork for youth ages 3-15. Whether your child has an interest in ballet, hip hop, tap, jazz or just want to move around, our classes cater to all interests and teach agility.

Students are placed based on their skills and we may move children to another class to match their ability. Most classes have a recital, showing off their talents to family members, with the exception of summer technique classes.

Detailed dates, prices and descriptions can be found in the printed brochure.
