Fall Schedule Coming Soon! 

Classes for Ages 8-11

Acrobatics

AGES 8 AND UP
Acrobatic training teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, and above all, discipline and concentration. Basic tumbling skills such as cartwheels, walkovers, handsprings as well as more challenging tucks and aerials will be incorporated with strength training and conditioning.

Ballet
AGES 8 AND UP 

Classical yet vibrant, traditional yet evolving, the technical training of ballet is the basis and foundation of all dance movement. Ballet training is essential to all other dance styles, and develops strength, grace, poise, posture and musicality. It is our belief and recommendation that ballet should be studied by every dancer at all ages and levels.

Boys Only Classes
AGES 8 AND UP
Dance is a great activity for BOTH boys and girls, but it's important to give boys instruction that is tailored specifically for them to keep their interest and make it fun. The studio features Boys Only classes that teach skills from hip-hop to tap with macho moves and steps that boys enjoy. Boys who can dance are in demand at high school proms and dances, so now is the time to learn how to move! Register for our Boys Only classes and, with a little instruction and practice, you can become the star of the dance floor!

Hip-Hop
AGES 8 AND UP
A funky, contemporary form of jazz with a sharp, street-smart edge that will add another dimension to your level of performance. This high energy class will focus on musicality and style as well as the history and culture of hip hop dance.

Jazz
AGES 8 AND UP
Jazz dance ranges in style from the excitement of funk to the bravura of Broadway. Jazz technique develops strength, coordination, and the controlled movement of each part of the body.

Lyrical/Contemporary

AGES 8 AND UP
A beautiful blend of ballet technique, jazz rhythms, and modern style create dances that reflect the emotions and lyrics of today's contemporary music. Lyrical/ Contemporary dance encourages natural, spontaneous movement and personal interpretation.

Musical Theatre
AGES 8 AND UP
Become a triple threat! This class will focus on elements of dance, singing and acting, all necessary components of musical theatre. The class will touch upon history and various styles of this art form and students will have the opportunity to perform numbers from well-known musicals.

Tap
AGES 8 AND UP
Tap works the ears as well as the feet. Rhythm skills are essential to building a solid dance education. Emphasis is placed on precision, speed, and clarity of sound with an upbeat and fun approach to rhythm and dance.
