Teen & Adult Dance

General Information about Our Dance Classes:

The fee listed is for eight weeks of class.  The dance year consists of four eight-week quarters.  With the exception of ballroom and latin dance, we do not accept new students after the second quarter.

We hold recitals in the spring, and most students who participate for the entire year will need to purchase a costume.  Costumes are ordered over the winter so that they will arrive in time for the May recitals and photos.
