Now Enrolling for our 14th Season!
August 18, 2018 - May 22, 2019
Deadline to enroll in our Fall semester: Sept 30th.
It's time for your dancer's debut! Our proven 45 minute class curriculum including tap and ballet offers 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 in a nurturing and creative environment that will lead them through a lifetime of love for dance.
Debut Dance 1: Ages 3-4
Debut Dance 2: Ages 4-5
Debut Dance 3: Ages 5-6
Debut Dance 4: Ages 6-7
Our Next Steps 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! All Next Steps classes have the opportunity to perform in our Winter Showcase and Spring Recital.
Should your dancer desire more performaning or perhaps competition, we recommend learning more about our Dance Company or Performance Team.
Next Steps 1: Ages 7-9
Next Steps 2: Ages 9-11
Next Steps 3: Ages 11-13
We offer classes specifically designed for beginner to intermediate teens ages 13 and up who are new to dance, but are interested in training in a variety of styles. Our schedule offers Teen classes including Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Drill Team Prep.
Please see more information on these special performance and competitive teams we offer on our Performing page.
We offer custom homeschool classes for your group. You can set the day, time, length of class, ages taught, styles learned and more!
