RECREATIONAL CLASSES

Our recreational program offers students of all ages the opportunity to experience dancing and singing classes from a team of educated and qualified instructors. Students attend class on a weekly basis and perform in our year-end recital in June. Additional highlights include performances in our annual Christmas Cheer Week, as well as participation in a variety of studio-wide events throughout the year. These classes are well suited for students who enjoy dance on a recreational basis, or performers who are looking for an introduction to the performing arts.

This involvement will provide dancers with an additional performance opportunity, an accelerated learning envirnment, and an emphasis on building confidence, creativity, and technique.
