The benefits of dance include increasing cardiovascular conditioning, strength, flexibility, and coordination. Cognitive abilities are also enhanced, as dancers must develop both mental and muscle memory to become proficient. Dancing also develops a great sense of rhythm and timing.

All Level 1 classes are open to age-appropriate students with little or no previous dance training.  Prior experience and instructor’s consent required for Levels 2 through Advanced.  New students should contact our office for proper placement, prior to registration.  Parents are invited to observe classes during scheduled visitor weeks.

All our dance studios have sprung wood floors and are fully air conditioned.
