The ART and FUN of Dance begins here!


We offer exciting classes for ages 18-months to adult, taught by expert instructors who love sharing the experience of dance and gymnastics with children. Dance is the art form in which human movement becomes the medium for sensing, understanding, and communicating ideas, feelings, and experiences. Dance provides a way of learning that develops communication abilities, problem solving techniques, and creative and critical thinking skills, along with kinesthetic abilities. At its core, the goal of dance education is to engage students in artistic experiences through the processes of creation, performance, and response.
