Classes: Dance Classes

For our instructional dance classes, there are two semesters and it is recommended students register for both (September–May). Taking both semesters gives the dancer the appreciation for the art and instills discipline while developing strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and memory. See below for all of our upcoming dance classes!
