Get up and Dance!

Dance Academy Classes offer children 3.5-19 years old a full year's dance curriculum with two theater performance opportunities, one in the Winter and one in the Spring. This program offers Creative Dance, Pre-Ballet, Ballet I-VI, Pointe, Lyrical, Jazz I-V, Tap & Ballet, combination classes, Pre-Irish Step, and Irish Step Dance I-III. Children are placed in class level by age and ability at the director and teachers' discretion.

Quarterly Dance Classes offer children 3 - 6 years, adults and teens 13+ the opportunity to try something new and to have a recreational dance experience with a short term commitment. We offer Creative Dance, Pre-Ballet, beginning, intermediate or open level Ballet for teens and adults, beginning and intermediate Tap for teens and adults.

Summer Dance Camps are offered after the 4th of July for 6-8 weeks. Dance camps are a great way to introduce kids ages 3-19 to new dance forms or to immerse them in the dance they love.
