Our excellent staff provide instruction in Creative Dance, Creative Pre-Ballet, Ballet levels I-VI, Pre/Pointe, Lyrical II-V, Jazz levels I-III, Tap Levels I-III and Tap/Ballet Combo, Irish Step. These classes provide a structured approach to dance, with an emphasis on technique, creativity and building self-esteem. We strive to bring each dancer to their best movement and artistic potential while remaining open and inclusive.
Students may register by semester, or for the full year and must be 3.5 years old by September 1st of the school year. Dancers who register for the full year receive a discount on their production fee. Students may enter the program any time until April 15th. However, all dancers will be evaluated in their first class for proper placement at the teacher and director's discretion to ensure all students are properly challenged. Students dancing in the fall have the opportunity to perform in the Winter Dance Concert. Spring semester dancers are invited to perform in our formal year-end recital. Good attendance, a minimum of 75% of classes before the performance, is required to perform in any show.
The Winter Dance concert is less formal; students borrow costume pieces to accessorize their dress code/classroom attire. Dancers have the option of purchasing a video of this performance. June Recital dancers are required to purchase costumes and attend a dress/stage rehearsal and will have the option of purchasing recital photos and videos. Tickets will be available for purchase.
