We provide a fun, professional and non-competitive atmosphere for our students who range in age from 2 1/2 to adults.  Dancers receive instruction (beginner through advanced levels) for a solid foundation in many dance forms.  Personal creativity, confidence and self-discipline are encouraged through structured classes which emphasize the joy of dance.

DO NOT wear perfume, body spray or scented lotions to class. Many people have sensitivities and some have asthma that can constrict breathing.

DO neatly pull back your hair in a style appropriate for the class you attend.

DO wear proper dance attire. Not everyone feels comfortable in a leotard and we most definitely are sensitive to this concern. However, street clothes and pajamas are not appropriate. DO NOT wear long baggy pants, your teacher will not be able to see your ankles/knees to check for proper alignment.

Thank you! Happy Dancing!
