Our academy is specifically designed to build high quality dancers while infusing students with a life long love for moving, performing and the fine arts. Dancers follow a strict syllabus and are instructed by a highly trained and qualified artistic faculty. This program allows students to achieve high levels of technical and artistic ability while preparing them to dance professionally if they so desire. It will also teach them to be determined, focused, creative, active, and well disciplined in whatever future pursuit they choose.

Students are placed in class and moved up on ability, not age, and must participate in each level before advancing to the next one. New students who did not attend our Pre-Ballet classes are allowed to take a placement class so that our Artistic Director can place them in the level corresponding to their skill level. We have open enrollment all semester long so students are welcome to join us at any point.
