Our combination classes of tap and ballet offer our young dancers, starting at age 3, an introduction to the wonderful world of dance. Our young students learn the proper technique and vocabulary of the steps that will lead them through a lifetime of love for dance.
Our weekly technique classes inspire and challenge our students to expand their knowledge of the steps while encompassing creative and energetic choreography. Dancers can choose from a variety of classes including the traditional favorites of ballet, tap and jazz as well as the unique styles of contemporary and hip hop. Our technique classes are recreational and will most likely have a mixed level of dancers within each class. Every dancer has their own strengths and we will be sure to bring those out every week! Should your dancer desire a more focused, skill-based class, we recommend learning more about our Dance Company.
It is never too late to start dancing or revisit the styles you loved growing up. Our adult classes feature Tone & Sculpt, traditional ballet and tap in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. No tights required! Each class is designed to tone and stretch while providing a great workout. We invite you to come give them a try. It sure beats the treadmill.

Throughout the year, we bring some of the most talented and respected performers, teachers and choreographers in the industry to Turning Pointe. These exclusive master classes allow our dancers to receive personalized training from these powerhouse instructors in an intimate setting. Broadway & Television Casting Director, David Petro flew in from New York in September of 2011 for our dancers. Courtney Galiano & Tadd Gadduang, Top 4 contestants of So You Think You Can Dance, have taught amazing workshops and inspire our students. Courtney has been gracious enough to come out in October of 2012 and 2013 and plans to return again this Fall. Tadd joined us last Spring for the first time and we can't wait to boogie with him again this April.
Proper dress for dance class is extremely important as teachers need to be able to see a dancers body in order to give corrections on placement and alignment.
