Our Academy offers the highest quality training for students ages six and up. Following a dedicated curriculum, our program is designed to pair technical requirements to appropriate physical, mental and emotional developmental age ranges. This approach ensures dancers train in the healthiest manner possible and allows for them to pursue a professional dance career if desired, develop a life-long love of movement, and become future arts patrons and supporters. Guided by our professional artistic staff, students learn technique, discipline, focus, group dynamics, organization, self-awareness and creativity in a structured but nurturing environment.
