Youth Dance Program (ages 7 - 19) 

Our Youth Dance Program has been carefully crafted with our students in mind. It serves both new and experienced dancers. It is a safe and professional environment for each student to explore their individual strengths and abilities.

We offer both a pre-professional and a recreational approach to fit the needs of our students.

The pre-professional program is for students who would like to take dance more seriously and advance in their technical training. We follow the ABT National Training Curriculum and present examinations each year.

Our qualified faculty members have decades of teaching experience and foster an atmosphere of originality and mutual respect for the variant body types and movement styles found in the studio.  Our students learn the value of discipline while learning to work together in a professional and supportive environment.
