Three & Four year olds
These classes are a combination of pre-ballet, tap, and tumbling.
We have developed a very effective program for our youngest students.
Concentrating on gross motor skills and group skills using music
and movement promotes a great environment for a positive learning
experience. This class is an excellent introduction to dance.
Five & Six year olds
These classes are a combination of ballet and tap. At this point,
we start to emphasize technique. Ballet is taught using the Cecchetti
method, and tap steps progress through a series of graded exercises.
We incorporate exercises into group activities using the latest
appropriate music to help motivate the children. Strict turnout
is not advocated until the students are a few years older with more
mature bones and muscles.
Older Students and Adults
As students grow, they are grouped according to age and/or ability.
Jazz is an exciting addition to the combination classes for these
dancers. We use upbeat, age-appropriate music and educate them to
all styles of jazz dancing from broadway to hip hop moves. Pre-pointe
ballet and pointe classes are available for dancers deemed ready
for this advanced discipline. Instructors will judge each individual’s
state of readiness. We teach contemporary dance using techniques
from groundbreaking choreographers. Self-discovery and free movement
around your center are emphasized during lessons. Hip hop class
is a fun way to get a workout. Energetic moves with street style
are taught to clean, popular music. Adult classes include ballet,
jazz and tap. The challenge of learning new skills (or polishing
old ones) combined with aerobic exercise draws women of all ages
to these classes on Tuesday nights.

Audition to be a part
of our Performance Company for ages 8-18. We'll perform at
community events throughout the year, go to a convention to take
classes from famous choreographers, and go to one competition in
the spring. Our goal for these serious dancers is to give them
the opportunity to learn faster, get more stage experience, and
gain confidence in their talent.
