Please note that age ranges are listed next to many of the classes. This indicates the age that a student may start studying that particular genre. A majority of our classes are skill based. Students are placed in various levels of classes depending on ability. It is very important to us that our classes are both challenging and fun.
PARENT / TOT (ages 18mo-3yr) Have fun learning basic movement and rhythm concepts while playing music and dance based games and activities. This is a drop in based class so families can come as they please. Each child must be accompanied by an adult and it cost $6 per child to participate.

BEGINNING DANCE COMBO (ages 4 and 5) This class will be divided into three 15 minute segments covering ballet, jazz and tap. This is a great introductory course for young dancers.
BALLET (ages 5 - adult) This influential dance form teaches balance, strength, flexibility and endurance. A strong emphasis is placed on technique, terminology and style variations. (Pre-Ballet is for students ages 4-5)
TAP (ages 5 - adult) Tap classes encourage students to be rhythm makers. This percussive dance form is perfect for students who love creating rhythm and music. (Pre-Tap is for students ages 4-5)

Winter Showcase:We will have two shows on December 17th, 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM. At the 3:00 PM show, all of our beginning level dancers will perform. Those class are as follows: Jazznastics, Creative Movement, BDC, pre-tap, pre-ballet, hip hop 5-6, and all level 1 classes. At the 7:00 PM show, we have selected our classes that are not technique based to perform in this show. Those classes are as follow: poms, lyrical, musical theater, all hip hop, and OBPAS company (our highest level ballet classes will also be performing pieces from the nutcracker during this performance). we have selected to do this so that our classes that are curriculum based have more time to work on strengthening and solidifying their technique during the fall semester without having to work on preparing a piece to perform.
Spring Recital: We will have three shows taking place May 13 at 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM, and May 14 at 3:00 PM. All classes will perform at our Spring Recital. We will have a dress rehearsal during the morning of May 13. All beginning level dancers (jazznastics, creative movement, BDC, pre-tap, pre-ballet, hip hop 5-6, and all level 1 classes) will perform once at 3:00 PM on May 13. All intermediate/advanced dancers (the remainder of our students) will perform twice, May 13 at 7:00 PM and May 14 at 3:00 PM.
