PRIMARY PROGRAM (Ages 3-7) · The Primary Program consists of Creative Dance and Primary Dance classes that explore dance concepts in a fun and engaging way, stimulating children’s spontaneity and self-expression in the beginning stages of basic ballet & modern dance technique with increasing levels of concentration, group work, and cognitive engagement.
PREPARATORY PROGRAM (Ages 7-10) · The Preparatory Program consists of Preparatory Dance, Ballet I A & B, and Modern I, where students have the option to study two classes per week, continue to expand their dance vocabulary, and strengthen their awareness of movement through the techniques of ballet and modern dance.

If they feel ready, we highly encourage students to take part in performance opportunities.
