Discovery Dance

Children ages 3 through Kindergarten explore the world of classical ballet or jazz in creative classes. These classes provide students with a solid foundation when entering the leveled classes. Discovery improves mental, social and communication skills, as well as overall coordination, strength and agility through targeted age-appropriate exercises. 

Pre-Professional Training

Unique focus on training based in classical ballet and encouraging study of a wide range of styles including jazz, modern ballet, tap, and hip hop from experienced, highly qualified teachers. We offer training to any student working to develop strong, proper technique including dancers at other programs as well as those interested in our resident companies.

Teen/Adult Program

For those wanting to take dance training including experienced dancers, dance teachers and those who want to take dance but would be out of place in a beginners class in our pre-professional program. Also, great for those who want this fun form of fitness.
