The Academy keeps classes going year round. We strongly encourage our students to participate in one of our summer camps, but we are also excited to offer these on going classes!

There are two six-week pay cycles, May 20-June 29 and July 8-August 17. Sign up for one or both.

AGES 3-4 

Below are our class and time options for ages 3-4, starting May 20, 2019

Pre-Ballet 1 with Pre-Tap 1 - a wonderful introduction to dance for young children, exploring the principles of movement to music, counting, spacial and self body awareness and team work... all with a giant dose of fun! Students will change shoes mid-class so that they get to explore the fun of creating their own rhythms with tap shoes. 

Monday 3:15-4:00pm - Hertzberg 

Wednesday 5:15-6:00pm- Hertzberg 

AGES 5-6

Below are our class and time options for ages 5-6, starting May 20, 2019

Pre-ballet 2 - a wonderful introduction to ballet for young children, exploring the principles of movement to music, counting, spacial and self body awareness and team work... all with a giant dose of fun!  This class is acceptable for most first time dance students, although those on the younger side of 5 may also be happy with Pre-ballet 1.  This class has more structure, focusing more on classical technique than pre-ballet 1, appropriate for a 5-6 year old's increasing attention span.  A great pairing with Pre-Tap 2!
