We offer a wide variety of dance styles for people of all ages and abilities.
Ballet classes are taught for levels I-VI and pre-intermediate through Intermediate/Pre-Professional. Students in levels I-VI build a foundation in classical technique and instruction in basic dance terminology. Classes above level VI build upon more advanced techniques, choreography, strength, musicality, and artistry while the Intermediate/Pre-Professional Levels focus on the highest levels of technique and artistry tailored to each individual dancer. Students of all levels are encouraged to participate in the Nutcracker and Spring Showcase performances.
