Ballet & Tap Combo Classes

 These Royal Academy of Dance programs are designed to promote fun and enjoyment that are relevant to a young child's developmental stage and not only provide high standards of dance training but also develop physical and structural skills, stamina, creativity, expression, and musicality. All are beneficial to students' continuous development in life and in dance.

Basics Combo begins at age 5

Pre-Primary begins at age 6

Primary begins at age 8, or at age 7 after having completed a year in Pre-Primary

AcroDance Classes

 Acrobatics is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements.  Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, lines, and extension with acrobatic movements.  Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling, and partnering, based in flexibility, contortion, and strength.

All of our Acro Dance classes are coordinated by jewel tones. 

Citrine - Just beginning

Ruby - Beginner with experience

Sapphire - Mastered a cartwheel, bridge and L handstand
