We are a family-oriented dance studio providing instruction in the arts of tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, ballet, pointe, hip hop, acro, musical theater, and dance team style kick & jazz. We welcome all students, at all levels, ages 2 1/2 through adult. We are non-competitive and strive to teach the love of dance to all in a supportive and fun environment. Our staff specializes in various ages and dance disciplines.
Our focus is to place students in classes of comparable ages and abilities. We want them to feel confident and proud of all they achieve each year. We place the learning needs of the student before other considerations, and we ask our parents to support us in that endeavor.
Our youngest students are exposed to tap, jazz and basic ballet, incorporating music, singing and simple instruments to teach movement, rhythm and music appreciation. As students grow older, they may add additional classes in ballet, hip hop, acro, musical theater, lyrical, pointe, and dance team style kick & jazz.
We welcome, but do not require, parents, siblings and friends to observe classes at our studio! We do ask that parents remain in the waiting room during class, as interruptions make it more difficult for our dancers to concentrate.

Regular attendance is essential to the learning process. We require students to attend all classes. If classes need to be missed due to other activities or events, parents should email us at email@example.com explaining the circumstance. We encourage our students to be involved in multiple activities but in order to be respectful of the teachers and the other students in the class, we ask that absences are kept to a minimum and that dancers take responsibility for missed classes and do their best to learn any new material that they may have been missed.
Our teachers reserve the right to ask a student not to participate in the annual recital if his or her attendance has prevented the student from participating productively in a routine. The teachers will consult the parent should this situation arise.
