Intro to Dance - Learn to move creatively and freely with a class that will introduce the basics of ballet and jazz styles.
Beginners - There are three genres in the beginning level - ballet, tap, and hip hop. Dancers will learn the basics of each genre, which are the building blocks to all other styles of dance. Having a solid foundation and strong understanding of proper technique is important in developing throughout the rest of their years in dance. Also, the dedication and discipline involved carries over into other aspects of life.
Level placement is determined by a number of factors including age, maturity, experience, and recommendations by our staff. We understand that each dancer is on their own individual journey and we will place your dancer in the class that will allow them to grow their talents and passion.
