Studio Calendar, Dress Code, & Office Hours

Our faculty is dedicated to providing your child with a nurturing, healthy, and professional environment that allows every student the chance to experience the elements of dance: confidence, coordination, creativity, grace, musicality, rhythm, self-esteem, technique, discipline, teamwork, and an appreciation for the arts, and above all fun!
