Class Information

Early Start

Designed to introduce toddlers age 1.5-3.5 to tap, jazz and ballet with a balance of play using colors, animals, opposites and more. Plenty of activity with parent and teacher interaction for children to explore dancing in a fun environment.

Dancing Divas

Designed to introduce your 3-6 year old preschooler to tap, jazz and ballet with just the right balance of discipline and silliness. Class is taught with a relaxed atmosphere to gradually introduce your dancer to the expected behavior in a dance class.

Ready to Go

Designed to introduce your 6-10 year old to tap, jazz and ballet. Class is very structured and appropriate behavior is expected. Though class is very fun, students should not expect any playtime during the hour. Families should assume that their dancer will spend a minimum of two years in this class. Permission is required to participate in this class if you do not fit the age requirements and will only be granted to those that have mastered the age appropriate level first. New students should be in first grade or higher. Some first graders may prefer the Dancing Divas class.
