Dance classes such as ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern dance, hip hop and belly dancing, are offered throughout the year, but the majority are offered during the school year. Classes are open to students of any ability from ages two to adult. Many of our classes offer the option to participate in dance recital(s). 

Dance classes help to improve flexibility, coordination, balance, stamina and strength. Our program allows students to explore dance in a fun and supportive environment.
