  • Pre-Dance: Children who are three to five years old can explore their movement range. Simultaneously, they will develop traits like coordination, strength, flexibility, and balance that are the building blocks of a dancer’s abilities. There is also a year-end show, which is much more spectacular than a mere recital.
  • Youth-Dance: If your child is seven and over there are several dance classes to choose from.  Hip Hop, Contemporary, Musical theatre etc. for ages seven to sixteen students can participate can participate in a wide variety of dance classes that we offer every week.
