Dance Program

St Clare Dance Program was founded in 1988 to provide a place for performing artists, young and old to explore their creative talents in a safe environment.  Dance is a healthy activity for mind, body and spirit for boys and girls.  We have designed a program where age-appropriate choreography, costumes and music are used.  All teachers are qualified and professional with dance, sports, education or health oriented college degrees.  No child or adult is ever turned away.  We are proud to say our program builds self-esteem, promotes health and wellness and has proven to create long lasting relationships through the art of dance. 

St. Clare is the only local parish that offers artistic enrichment of this caliber through the art of dance.  Students not only learn to hone their own personal artistic expression, but are taught about famous classical ballets, Broadway shows and the choreographers that have made the world of dance what it is today.

Classes begin in September and finish in June
