Studio Dance Classes
Studio Classes are labeled as: [Dance Style] [Class Level] (i.e. “Hip Hop II”). Class levels are classified by both age and experience. Students will learn a choreographed combo that will be broken down and drilled throughout the class. Students will be challenged with attempting different approaches and methods of executing the choreography, as well as channeling different emotions and intentions to effectively tell a story through their movement.

Unlike the recreational classes, Studio Classes run for the full year and will end with a recital to showcase the routines learned throughout the year. Students in the Studio Classes will be guaranteed at least 2 routines in the recital per class they sign-up for. Additionally, studio dancers will be offered exclusive discounts on dance workshops/events and recital costume, among other benefits.
