Studio Dance is designed to introduce and continue your child's knowledge and skills in a variety of dance forms. Using studio-quality instructors and curriculum, dancers have the opportunity to engage in dance classes that build a strong dance foundation and enhance technique in a structured learning environment.
We offer many different classes varying from season to season. This includes ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and modern dance. Classes are offered in the summer, fall and winter, with an annual spring recital held yearly.
All dancers must be the appropriate age within the first two weeks of the session and must be potty trained. If a child is registered in a dance program and is not potty trained, a pull up must be worn at all times.
