(Note, all registrations must be completed online)

We are offering the following NEW classes

Tumbling/ Hip Hop Dance for Boys and Girls!

No prior tumbling or hip hop experience is required. Tumblers will learn the proper technique and execution of cartwheels, round-offs and the beginning techniques of acrobatics in a safe nurturing environment. Students will learn basic balancing skills using a low balance beam and will also work on core strength, stretching and flexibility. Beginning tumbling will focus on forward rolls, backward rolls, back bends and walk overs using a wedge mat. This class will also enjoy learning basic hip hop moves and rhythm through dance exploration.


Acrobatic movements are combined with dance technique to create a smooth transition between the two disciplines. Students learn the fundamentals of movement and timing with tumbling. Students will increase technique, flexibility and muscle development in a structured and safe environment.


Modern dance is an innovative and creative dance technique that explores inventive movement and creative choreography. We incorporate the Graham method of modern technique, creating movement through shapes in space and expressing ideas and emotions which follow the musical intent. Modern is sometimes called Contemporary. No shoes required.


Lyrical is a style that utilizes ballet, jazz and modern techniques, to result in an expressive dance form that “tells a story” or relates “a feeling”. We strongly recommend that lyrical students be enrolled in a supplemental ballet or jazz class.

Adult Beginning Ballet

Adult beginning ballet is a fun class for all ages with low impact barre work, and a focus on stretching and strength building. Great way to tone your body and work on core strength. No dance experience required.
