Foundational Dance

Our foundational dance classes provide a fun, professional and well-rounded program that all students will love. From ages 2 - 5 years 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 foundational dancers perform at our professional, highly anticipated recital at the end of the season and our mid season show in December. No prior experience is needed to join our foundational classes. Everyone is welcome!
