Beginners

Are you or your child a beginner? Are you wondering which class to start with and when you should sign up? Well, you’re on the correct page!

We offer dance classes for beginners ages 2 to adult. If you or your child are brand new to dance, you can start now!

There are two sessions that follow the school year.
Fall/Spring: September-May & Summer: June-August

In general, beginners may join any time during the summer and any time during the fall. Around February 1st we’ll close most classes to new enrollment so classes can work on recital routines. In March we’ll also open brand new, non-recital classes so beginners can still join. Some classes, like stretch, accept new enrollment year-round. Check out our class schedule page for class meeting times.
