Preschool through Teen & Adult Classes (Click)

ROTATIONAL CLASSES – Preschool and Up. Expose your dancer to 3 different forms of dance, focusing on one dance style each week.  Ballet, Tap, and Jazz are rotated weekly so the students received a full class in one genre while still taking three different styles of dance throughout the year.

ROTATIONAL CLASSES With Tumbling – Our popular Rising Starr and Fusion 1 & 2 classes are also offered with a tumbling option.  This extended time class allows students to learn tumbling in addition to Ballet, Tap, and Jazz on a weekly basis.

EXTREME JAZZ & HIP HOP – Classes use both jazz techniques for turns, alignment and choreography and combine it with fun and current hip hop moves and the latest styles to create a one of a kind class!  Your dancer will learn the best of both genres!

HIP HOP – Our Hip Hop Only offerings bring your dancer the latest moves in these fun, energetic classes!

AERIAL DANCE –Explore dance in 3 dimensions, using silks to ascend and “fly” in new and creative bodily designs.

ADULT TAP – A great class for both the beginning student and the advanced tapper!
