DANCE CLASSES

For all Dance Classes featuring a “Beginning” or “Intermediate/Advanced” designation in the title, please sign your student up (or yourself) for the class you feel they belong in, but if we need to make a change, we will place the students in a different dance level if their ability is noticeably beyond or below the other enrolled students in that class. This is not to separate good dancers from bad dancers, or an A Team from a B Team. This is to put our students in a class level that is appropriate for them to learn and the teachers to teach. One semester of “Beginning” does not qualify you for being in the Intermediate class the next semester. It takes TIME for the body to adapt to dancing. If the appropriate level does not fit with your schedule, we also are very happy to offer private dance lessons.

**The Adult Dance Classes will be for adults, while the other classes will for Kids and Teens.**

Also this semester we are very pleased to offer PRIVATE DANCE LESSONS! These lessons will be one on one with your student and one of our accomplished Dance Instructors. Scheduling will be determined by you and the instructor. There is no better way to improve your dancing! We are still offering PRIVATE VOICE LESSONS as well. If you register for those below, we will contact you for scheduling and teacher preferences.
