Being a Ballet student is an exciting artistic journey with many benefits! Proper Ballet training produces a beautiful, strong, flexible, and healthy body that results in good posture, grace, and poise. Ballet training instills disciple that enables the Ballet student to be successful in many other aspects of their life. A highly qualified and professionally trained faculty can provide individual attention to each student’s technical and physical abilities to support each student’s progression at a comfortable and appropriate rate. Ballet is the basic foundation for all other styles of dance and should be studied first or in combination with other forms of dance.Students typically begin formal ballet training at the age of 6 years old.


Modern Dance is a more free-form style, based on fundamental modern techniques that are intertwined with the dancer’s own interpretation of emotion and expression. Dancers are encouraged to develop their own steps and routines, involving their whole body for complete expressions. Modern Dance emphasizes a whole body approach, including endurance, strength, coordination, and body awareness to create freedom of expression with music and rhythm. Students of Modern Dance have mastered the fundamentals of Intermediate Ballet.




Jazz provides even more free, rhythmic, and emotional expression than Modern dance. Jazz dance is unrestrictive, non-classical, and less academic than ballet. However, Jazz movement draws upon many other forms of dance technique to produce a clean, smooth and uninterrupted movement. Most students have a background in both ballet and tap prior to an introduction to Jazz classes.
Young students from the combo class (ballet/tap) will begin Jazz starting at age 6. All Jazz students are required to be enrolled in on-going ballet as part of their Jazz preparation.

Contemporary / Lyrical

Contemporary Dance is a combination of ballet, modern and jazz techniques. This is a unique dance style demonstrating the versatility, improvisation and concert dance styles presented in combination with Modern or Pop music. Lyrical Dance is fusion of ballet, modern, and jazz that expresses the emotions of the song lyrics. It is characterized by lovely, poetic, and flowing quality.
Ballet must be taken in combination with Contemporary / Lyrical training.


Tap is FUN for EVERYONE! It is a rapid way for dancers (from child to adult) to focus on their ability to “feel” the rhythmic beat, develop coordination, and ultimately, translate these skills into an energizing dance movement. Young children especially enjoy tap because it teaches them to keep time with the music, while practicing their ability to count and apply basic math with physical motion. Tap students carry this training into various other parts of their lives from practicing self-discipline to learning to coordinate movement as a “team” that applies to sports, social, or other group activities later in life. We offer Tap starting in our Combo classes and offer progressive level classes through Adult.

Combination Classes

For children ages 3-6 years, we offer Combo classes to introduce the fundamentals of dance. These classes include Ballet, Tap, and Gymnastics – one day a week, for a one hour class. We offer two class groups: one for 3-4 year old and another class for 5-6 year olds. These classes are designed to teach early rhythmic skills and body awareness – an essential education for young dancers.


There is a non-refundable yearly registration fee of $50 per student due with enrollment.
