Lyrical/Contemporary

Lyrical dance provides an extension to the jazz technique.  Emphasis is on sustained movement and improvisations.  This class adds a new dimension to the students’ training.

Fundamentals and Fun Program (formerly PTC)

This is a low intensity program designed for the student who loves to dance without the demand or commitment of the competitive student.  Children may be prepared for exams at the teacher’s discretion and local competition(s) in the disciplines they are taking.

Students must take a Ballet or Jazz class to register, and be at least 11 years of age.

Students will be placed in classes based on dance experience and age.
