Italia Performing Arts Dance School Schedule

Dance School Class Winchester Woodstock Edinburg Virginia

For the 2024-2025 year, dance classes will run from Monday, August 19, 2024 through Thursday, June 12, 2024. 

Italia Performing Arts is closed for Labor Day (Sept. 2), Halloween (Oct. 31), and Thanksgiving (Nov. 27-30), Christmas and New Year’s (Dec. 23 – Jan. 1), spring break (Apr. 14-19), Apple Blossom Festival (May 2-3), and Memorial Day (May 26). We do not close for other public holidays.
Notices about scheduling, cancellations, and holiday closings can be found in the Parent/Student Portal or received through our app.

Student Ages & Dance Class Placement

The ages listed for each class are given only as a general guide. We do not move students up on their birthdays. Students will be placed in classes according to their age, ability level, and experience, and all classes are subject to rearrangement based on numbers registered and teacher availability.

Student ages listed for Italia’s dance classes indicate the student’s age as of the start of the school year (i.e. Sept. 2024). The only exception is for Pre-Primary 1 Ballet and Acro Darlings; for those classes only, we accept new students who will be turning 3 during the year. 

For boys and girls ages 3 to 10, we offer Pre-Primary Ballet, Primary Ballet, and Ballet Basics classes. These classes are intended for beginners as well as those with some dance experience.

For students ages 10+, we offer two streams of classes:

  • Ballet Basics is for students who are taking ballet once a week. All beginners ages 9+, including teens, are initially accepted only for Ballet Basics.
  • Our Ballet Pro Stream is for serious students who want to move on to performance, competition, or a professional dance career. Pro Stream training includes intensive focus on the Cecchetti Method of classical ballet. Students may only pursue this stream if recommended by Italia Performing Arts staff. 

We also offer adult dance classes at our Winchester studio.
