The art of dancing can be learned at any age. Miss Andrea and her company of teachers start dancers as young as age 2 in Baby Ballet! If you are willing to get your feet moving there is a class for you. Our teachers are the areas finest with many years of teaching and performing experience. Classes are designed to challenge the students and prepare them for recitals that are held twice a year, at Christmas and in the Spring. As your dancer improves new goals will be given to challenge their ability. We have many classes to choose from. Please keep in mind that the number of students in each class is kept low for individual attention.
