Our evening Summer Dance Workshops are a great place to try a new dance style, discover a new interest, or for a student new to dance, a chance to see what it is all about. In our four week workshops experience various dance forms like Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Acro. Classes are small – there are only 10 dancers per class for the 2-5 year olds and 15 dancers in all other classes. This allows each student to get the personal attention needed to progress during the workshop program. Classes are available for dancers ages 2 to adult. Classes meet twice a week and run Monday-Thursday, July 10th through August 4th. Meet our faculty and check out our classes below.
