KINDER & YOUTH PROGRAM

Our Kinder and Youth program offers a comprehensive curriculum of classes beginning with the exploration of rhythm, imagery, self-expression and communication with movement. These creative movement classes transition into technique classes as students approach 8 years old when the program introduces a range of dance classes including Ballet, Modern, Pointe, Jazz and Hip Hop. When students reach 12 years old, there is an opportunity to audition for Junior Repertory Company. This pre-professional dance company is for highly dedicated students who strive to expand their technical and artistic dance ability.
