Class Descriptions

We are proud to utilize best-practices approaches to dance training. We are a licensed Leap 'N Learn studio, which directly influences all ballet, tap and musical theatre classes for ages 3-6. In addition, we use specific, tried and true syllabi for all ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop classes. As a community of teachers we stand united in our approach to dance education. Class descriptions are arranged with specialty classes first, then by age for 3-6 year olds, and then by level for ages 7+.
