CLASS STYLES

Hover on each style image for an in-depth description of that class and what your dancer will learn in class. Clicking on the image will lead you to a listing of available classes in that particular style.

TOTS: 1.5-2 yrs | MINIS: PreK | Petite: Kinder-2nd Grade | Recreational: 3rd Grade +

Our classes are split up by age, grouping students together to create friendships that will travel with them through their school years while also keeping in mind their developmental growth. As students age, we start to implement leveling during class, splitting into beginner/advanced classes. Leveling helps students who may need extra time to grow and develop skills or students who are looking for more challenging classes. This also means that new students of any age are welcome to join our studio without having a prior history of dance, or those who have danced previously and are looking for a new studio to join.
