Class Information

Our classes are offered by level, determined by technical skill and experience. Some classes are also divided by age group. There are special classes that can be taken in addition to your regular level; however ballet is a requirement for all students, as it is the foundation of all dance instruction. If you are a new student, please call the studio to set up an evaluation so our friendly staff can place you in the appropriate level. All returning students will be evaluated throughout the year, and their teachers will decide when they are ready to advance to the next level.
