Summer schedule and class choices
Summer classes are a great opportunity to expose your young child to dance classes for the first time, if you are unsure whether your child is ready for a long-term commitment. For more experienced students, it is a great time to hone skills, try new dance styles, and get one-on-one coaching.
Courses for beginners are offered in Pre-School, Ballet, Tap, Acrobatics, Jazz, and Hip-Hop. The courses are 4 weeks long, and take place in July. Classes meet two times a week. This is an opportunity to expose your child or yourself to the fun of dance without a long-term commitment. It can also be a time to try a new style if you already dance.

For those interested in continuing dance classes through the summer, there is a 4 week course of study for beginners through advanced students. This is a good time to strengthen your technique, catch up with your age group or increase your flexibility. Serious students should not stop dance classes because school is out!

Because the school and teachers are busy during the regular dance season, summer is the only time available for private lessons. If you are in need of a competition routine, need individual coaching for dance problems, or want to catch up with an upper level, this type of lesson may be for you. Available in July. $50.00 per 40Min. class
If you do not see a class you are interested in, please ask. If we have enough interest we will start one. Requested classes must have 6 registered to be held. To be considered registered, students must submit a registration form and 1/2 tuition. If class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, the tuition will be refunded.
