We provide an opportunity for students to not only learn terminology and technique, but also self-discipline, confidence, respect and an appreciation for dance as an art form. Our goal is to provide inspiration and education to our students in a healthy and                 nurturing environment.  Our faculty does much more than teach-they are dedicated to inspiring dancers through music, movement and many forms of dance. 




Classes are divided into graduated levels designed to facilitate learning as well as to care for and nurture the physical, social and mental development of our students. For all students ages 4 and over class is scheduled once weekly for a 32 week semester that runs from September through May.  We welcome enrollment throughout the year.  Our year culminates in a fantastic performance that showcases dancers of all ages in all genres.
