Tap classes for children age 3+, centered around rhythm and timing, as we bring classic spice and technique to the dance floor.

Modern and Jazz classes for children age 10+ and teens, releasing your child’s expression and passion with fluid and upbeat movement.

In the Musical Theatre class for children age 8+ and teens, students will learn what is involved in musical theatre, and will participate in acting games, learning performance and dance skills.
