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!

Intro to Ballet


Intro to Ballet I classes combine stories and music in a child-friendly setting to help students develop body/spatial awareness, rhythm, flexibility, balance, coordination, memorization skills, and confidence. Students will be introduced to beginning ballet techniques and learn basic ballet terminology.


For female students, a leotard, tights, and pink ballet slippers are required, and hair should be neatly pulled back out of the face in a ponytail or bun. For male students, a white t-shirt, black shorts or pants, and black ballet shoes with white ankle socks are required for this year-round class. The Dance Recital will be held in May 2022. *$60 Recital fee not included and will be charged in late January.
