Youth Classes


DanceDance Program

Dance education provides more than just technical dance skill development. Through consistent dance training, children can develop better posture, coordination, balance, endurance, grace, poise, timing and rhythm, self-confidence, discipline of body and mind, self-esteem, socialization and teamwork skills. Observation- We ask that you limit your visitation of the dance classes to the first and last day of the session. We have found that the students learn much faster without the distraction of parents and siblings in the dance class. Thank you for your cooperation.
