Our Classes

Intro to Dance (ages 2-3)

The perfect one hour program to welcome your child to the art of dance. This class is comprised of fun filled songs that introduce your child to Tap, Ballet, and Creative Movement. Not only is this class the perfect “introduction” into the world of dance, it also develops socialization skills, listening skills, independence, and also helps with parent/child separation.

Preschool Combo (ages 3-4)

A one hour class consisting of Tap and Ballet set to their favorite songs. Children further their dance vocabulary and technique while having fun. This class also serves to develop rhythm, coordination, and musicality.

Tap/Jazz/Ballet Combo (ages 4-5)

A one-hour class consisting of Tap, Jazz-Hip-Hop, and Ballet technique. This is the perfect graduation from the Preschool Combo. Students build off of the basics they know, as they advance their knowledge of these dance forms. Children are exposed to jazz/hip-hop for the first time.

Tap/Ballet Combo,  Jazz/Hip-Hop/Ballet Combo,  Tap/Jazz/Hip-Hop Combo ( ages 4 & Kindergarten)

A one hour class consisting of 1/2 hour of Tap and 1/2 hour of Jazz/Hip-Hop or Ballet. Children expand their knowledge of these dance forms through an hour class structured to keep their attention, and focus, while instilling a love for this art form. This class prepares students to move to the full hour technique classes.

Ballet (ages 5 & up)

Ballet is the foundation of all dance and is highly recommended as a fundamental study and compliment for all styles of dance. All dancers are taught proper dance terminology and technique that is both age and level appropriate. Our Ballet classes further develop grace, poise, flexibility, and performance.

Irish Step (ages 5 & up)

An ethnic form of dance that focuses on fast, intricate footwork. Students begin with soft shoe, and then progress to hard shoe. We teach non-competitive Irish dance. Our students learn in a more relaxed and supportive atmosphere, not the overly strict and rigid classes usually associated with Irish Dance.

Jazz/Hip-Hop (ages 5 & up)

One of our most popular classes! Jazz/Hip-Hop is a fun, exciting, energetic class that allows the dancer to express their individual personalities and style. All of our jazz/hip-hop classes incorporate jazz technique such as leaps and turns with today's popular hip hop choreography, all set to upbeat, current music.

Lyrical (ages 7 & up)

Lyrical is a fusion of jazz and ballet. This dance style combines technical components of ballet with the freedom and fluidity of jazz. Lyrical is an expressive style of dance that allows the dancer to interpret and express the emotions, lyrics and story associated with a piece of music.


Pointe (ages 12 & up)

A more advanced form of Ballet, utilizing pointe shoes. This Class is based upon teacher discretion. Students must have a strong dance background.

Pom/Kickine (ages 5 & up)

Pom/ Kickline is an exciting class that incorporates jazz/hip hop technique and choreography while incorporating the use of poms! Students learn jumps, turns, leaps, and tricks commonly seen performed by dance teams.

Tap (ages 5 & up)

Tap is a classic form of dance that not only involves how one looks while dancing, but also how one sounds. Tap is a fun, upbeat, rhythmic style of dance that allows the dancer to develop their coordination, balance, rhythm and musicality.
