Cecchetti Classical Ballet

We specialize in teaching classical ballet using the Cecchetti Method, for beginning, recreational and pre-professional students.

Ballet/Pilates Combo for Adults

If you danced as a child, or always wanted to, it is not too late to put the art of dance back into your movements.

Rising Stars: Movement and Drama for Age 2

This class offers students the opportunity to experiment and become familiar with movement, voice and self-expression.


Tap dance is best known for the sound it makes. The rhythmic tapping sound is accomplished by the dancer.

Lyrical and Contemporary Dance

Lyrical dance is a union of jazz and ballet techniques. Contemporary dance combines elements of several dance genres.

Jazz and Hip-Hop Dance

The Jazz and Hip-Hop class is a fun, up-beat blend of dance combining jazz and hip-hop technique in one class.

Musical Theatre

In our Musical Theatre classes students learn performance and dance skills, responding to the action of story and song.

Musical Theatre Vocals

It is important for our Musical Theatre students to learn to sing well. So we now offer a Musical Theatre Vocals class.
