2019-2020 Dance Schedule

2019-2020 Season of Dance

  • This schedule is subject to change to accommodate either unusually high or low numbers of registrants per class.  You will be contacted if the adjustments affect the status of your registration.
  • Age and grade ranges are only approximate estimates.  Please contact us if you have questions about the appropriate class. We can work with you to find the perfect class for you child.
  • Questions?  Please call or email us.  Studio contact information can be found at the bottom of each page on our website.

The below classes are organized by age group. Some of our classes are offered for wider age ranges and are therefore listed in more than one table. For class descriptions please see the Class Descriptions tab under Youth Dance Studies at the top of this page. 

All of our classes for dancers younger than five are offered on a quarterly basis. You can register your child for just one quarter or for all 4 quarters.
