As a dancer of one of our performing groups, you must be at an intermediate to advanced level for your age group (5 years and up). This includes good technique, execution, and showmanship in multiple styles of dance -- tap, ballet, lyrical, jazz and/or hip-hop. You are a person who enjoys learning as well as performing on stage in front of large audiences. Additionally, you are a dancer who listens, behaves, focuses, and has fun in class.
Each performing group will practice 2 to 4 days per week during the school year (September through May). The total number of hours per week various by performing group. Regular attendance is required of competitive dancers. Additionally, tuition ranges from $60 to $335 per month depending upon the performing group and amount of practice.
