Please note that while we break down our classes and levels by age, dance is not similar to school in the fact that everyone moves up each year. Each dancer progresses at their own pace and we want to ensure they have all the proper building blocks, strength, and skills before progressing to the next level. At the end of each year, teachers provide an evaluation for each dancer on various things such as attitude, technique, skills, retention, etc. Each student is also provided with feedback or comments and a recommendation for the following dance year as to what level of classes to take.
Yoga – A form of meditation and relaxation that focuses on breath control and various postures.
Adult Dance Classes – Offered on a rolling basis and subject to change based on interest. Please contact the studio for availability and details!
