Ballet incorporates grace, athleticism, & coordination into one captivating dance style. They practice daily to remain skilled & in top physical condition.


This American-style of dancing focuses on the strength, power, control & flexibility of the dancer. Jazz dance also emphasizes individual expression.


Tap dancers use their feet like drums to create rhythmic patterns & timely beats. "Tap dancing" is derived from sound produced when the metal plates on the  shoes touch a hard surface.


This style incorporates movement with freedom & meaning, usually for a serious artistic purpose.  Stresses expressive individuality over conformity.


You only need a small amount of experience – come along and experience the Jazz and Ballet styles from our professional instructors. Classes are a fun way to get fit while gaining experience.
