Our intermediate classes are for the more seasoned dancer with a lot of drive for dance! This is where you start to be pushed harder. Dancers will have fun learning more difficult techniques in dance and start to become solid dancers. It is expected the dancer is able to follow proper dance etiquette and discipline in class. These dancers will be invited to perform in the recitals.
All dancers are highly encouraged to take ballet with any other class as it's the most necessary piece of a dancer's education.
Advanced classes are for dancers that have a good understanding of terminology and technique in multiple disciplines. These classes are designed to prepare the dancers for more in their own venture. They will be taught at a faster pace and be expected to keep up with class. These dancers will be invited to perform in recitals.
Classes for Young Children
Our Magic dancers and pre-ballet classes are designed so that any little one can join a new class. All young children learn and grow in different environments. We offer classes to accommodate the busy child that loves to move and interact with music. But we also offer classes for the shy, little ballerina that wants to be a princess. All these groups will perform in the recitals.
