COST: $100 per student with 50% discount for registering for multiple classes or siblings registering for the same class

DANCE CLASSES: For all Dance Classes featuring a “Beginning” or “Intermediate/Advanced” designation in the title, please sign up your student 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 offer private dance lessons.
