We’re Glad you’re Here We offer a complete dance program

It doesn’t matter where you’re starting, whether you’ve never danced before or you’ve slipped on your dance shoes about a thousand times, whether you’re looking for a casual dance class, some private lessons or a competitive program that will push you. At our School of Dance, you’ll find the program that’s right for you. Welcome to your new dance studio.

FOUNDATIONS PROGRAM
Learn the fundamentals and focus on the enjoyment of dance while still learning important skills. Our Foundations is our recreational program with no mandatory prerequisite and classes available for all our disciplines. Class placement is determined by age. No minimum number of classes are required. 

ACCELERATED PROGRAM
For students who want to step up their training, we offer dedicated classes at a higher level. Our Accelerated program gives the opportunity to enhance dance training by committing to more classes each week, with the expectation that students participate in exams (for ballet) or competitions (for all other disciplines). Dancers get to enroll in a minimum of two classes per week. With progressing skill, age and level, the number of classes will increase.
