Our recreational dance classes provide a fun, professional and well-rounded program that all students will love. From ages  2-5 students learn the fundamental steps of all dance styles through the use of props, stories and games in our preschool program. Beginning at age 6 students choose classes based on their interests and build a unique program that is suited to them. All recreational dancers perform at our professional, highly anticipated recital at the end of the season and our winter showcase in December.
