So we don't shut down over summer like most dance studios. We have short 3 week term starting the second week of January.  Enjoy our 6 day a week program, featuring our regular dance styles - ballet, contemporary, jazz, and tap.  Some classes are taught by our regular teachers, plus we'll have some wonderful guest artists.
