Curriculum

Pre-School and Elementary Dance Combos

3 to 5 year olds have their own classes that deal with their particular age and developmental needs. The dance combination classes combine ballet, tap and tumbling. In addition to learning their first dance steps, the young dancer will also develop skills in being in a class setting and expressing themselves.

Specialized Dance Classes

These graded classes in Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Acro, Lyrical, Modern and Hip Hop provide the level needed for each dancer dependent on ability and experience. They have been designed for the student who would like to concentrate in one or more specific areas of dance.

Acro/Gymnastics

This program is divided according to levels of proficiency and age. Our award winning acro program will provide the necessary training for the student who is looking for improved flexibility or for those involved in cheerleading and dance teams.
