*There are some age requirements for certain classes such as pointe, hip hop and tumbling.

Special Needs Class (for children with special needs and/or learning disabilities): This 30 minute class will have 2 teachers (Ali and Holly who both have experience with Special Needs children) and will be based on the child's level of understanding. It moves at a slower pace than the other classes and is a great way to get in some exercise! They will do a dance at our recital with the help of our staff.

Dance classes begin after Labor Day and will conclude at our annual recital at the end of May.


We try our best to accommodate siblings and students taking multiple class to have them come to class on the same day. If you have any special requests, please let the staff know and we will try to make it work.
