Dancing is like dreaming with your feet...

Course Offerings for Students between the ages of 5-6 years

 

We are pleased to include new class options and performance options for our 5-6 year old students for the 2018-2019 Season.  Students must be 5 years old by August 1st, 2018.

Our Combo classes are created to allow the young dancer to be exposed to various dance styles to help prepare them for beginning level Variations classes.  

These classes are designed to be able to be taken separately or paired together.  Performance options are not required and are flexible, meaning you can take more than one class and perform multiple times or just perform once.  Class descriptions and schedule options are listed below.  

Please feel free to contact our office with any questions you may have about our program for 5-6 year olds!
