Dance Arts Program

DAA will provide leveled classes starting in September and ending in June for students starting at age two. We hold classes in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical, hip hop, contemporary, theatre jazz, Acrobatic Arts, combo classes for younger students, adult workshop classes, and petite performance classes. These classes will end in an Annual Recital at the beginning of summer to showcase the student's growth and improvement.

We offer a grouping of classes for the dancer looking to train in the traditional foundation classes - this is called The Performer's Program. For a flat fee, your dancer will take a 45-minute jazz class, a 45-minute tap class, and a 45-minute or hour ballet class (depending on your dancer's level). Additional classes can be added to your dancer's schedule at a reduced price. We also offer an Unlimited Class Program for dancers 10 and older. For $265 per month, your student will have access to all level-appropriate classes. 

We are a certified Acrobatic Arts Studio and offer two classes - Acro I & II. We follow and adhere to a detailed and lengthy syllabus to use for classes that certified studios follow nationally and internationally. Please understand this is not a gymnastics class. 

Another quick leveling and class placement note ~ we are not like the school system where your student can move up a level EACH year. As a dance studio with only up to 4 or 5 levels per genre of dance, most dancers spend a couple or more years within a level before being moved up.
