'Our strength is in our teachers - Our beauty is in our dancers'

Programs

Where to start?  We can help

Do you want to enroll your child in a dance program but don't know where to start?  We can help with that.  As always, we offer a range of programs for ages 18 months through adult.  As a first thought we encourage our students to enroll in a Ballet program.  Ideally, students would include Ballet in their dance studies along with any other styles of dance they wish.  The cross training benefits are enormous.  Ballet lends itself to a host of other benefits such as strength, poise, posture and technique that even transcends the class and projects into every day life.  The study of ballet will benefit the dancer in all other forms of dance they study. 

If Ballet doesn't appeal to your dancer, that's fine too! We offer many other programs for your dancer to choose from.

Ballet

Students will study classical ballet based on principles of the Cecchetti method.  Technique and artistry are nurtured in this beautiful style of dance.  As technique builds students may progress to work on Pointe.

Acrobatics

Acro-Dance is the beautiful fusion of the artistic motion of dance and the athleticism of acrobatics. Often defined by its unique choreography, Acro-Dance blends seamlessly classic dance styles with acrobatic movement. The dance styles can be really anything, from a fast paced jazz routine to a slow and beautiful lyrical, or contemporary piece. Acro-Dancers are expected to seamlessly incorporate the skills which is why it is important to also study ballet and/or jazz in addition to acrobatic technique

Tap

Develop rhythm, timing and make as much sound at you can in this fabulous and enduring dance style

Street Jazz/Hip Hop

Drawing from jazz technique and hip hop, show your personality and make the movement your own

Contemporary

Along with technique, movement is fueled with depth of feeling and emotion in this powerful expression of dance.  Contemporary is available to students currently enrolled in ballet.
