At the Dance Workshop, we believe in quality training, regardless of the dancer's age or ultimate goal. To
this end, our faculty is comprised of teachers who possess a wealth of professional experience in teaching,
performance and choreography. We also believe in a "multi-lingual " approach to training, and to this end,
you will find classes in Ballet, Pointe, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop, Dance Team, Earth Rhythms, HIp
Hop, Belly Dance, and more.
We believe in dance as an integral part of life, and invite you to share this with us.

Moving Words: The Duet of Writing & Dance, the weeks are
designed to work for both new and returning students.

experiences in integrating writing, reading, and science themes with
the arts and movement., and is a wonderful way to build on your
child's school year academic experience.
From experiences in Jazz, Dance for Musical Theatre, Hip
Hop and more, participants also collaborate and do
creative problem solving!
