New Classes Available for 2017-2018! 

We are happy to announce that we are offering Open Division classes in our 2017-2018 year! These classes are designed for children, teenagers, and adults that are trying dance for the first time or are seeking dance experience without the time commitment of the formal training within our School Division. These are generally considered beginner level classes where introductory concepts of dance styles will be explored while surrounded by peers of a similar age and experience level. No previous dance experience is necessary for these classes, however we welcome new students of all ages and experience levels. The Open Division offers a variety of classes available to students ages 7 through adult. Classes may include: Strength & Flexibility, Teen Ballet, Adult Ballet, Teen Jazz, and Yoga for Dancers.

 

Teaching Philosophy

We believe in providing a stimulating and compassionate atmosphere for emotional, intellectual, social, and personal growth. This allows students to explore and discover their potential by offering a safe, yet challenging environment. By maintaining a positive and progressive learning space, we promote mutual respect that empowers students to develop the life skills necessary to identify and achieve their goals.
