What Sets Us Apart?

We are the only dance program in the area that offers profesional quality dance training with Classical Ballet as the foundation.  We also offer Tap, Jazz, Pre-Ballet for ages 3-5 and Contemporary Dance so students can choose from a variety of styles. Even if you do not plan on a career in dance, you still receive the best technical training and performance opportunities around. Our ballet students have the chance to perform in our annual "Nutcracker" as well as in original choreography and ballets of favorite fairytales and stories from "Cinderella", "Alice in Wonderland" and "Peter and the Wolf" to "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", "The Little Mermaid" and more! We also offer the opportunity for our "Art of Classical Ballet" students to participate in a special Cultural Exchange Program with dancers from France. Class sizes are limited so students receive individual attention. Our studios are family friendly with waiting areas for parents who want to watch their children dance.
