The Academy Dance program is geared to children seven years and older who want to experience dance for the first time or improve skills they may already have. The dancer can experience one or multiple genres of dance, including: jazz, tap, ballet, and tumbling. The schedule is flexible. Dancers are encouraged to take classes in multiple disciplines as they grow and mature as dancers to find which style of dance best suits them. This program requires minimal commitment and is typically the starting point for technical training. All Academy dancers are encouraged to perform twice a year in our Holiday Show in December and our annual Dance Concert in July. They will have the opportunity to eventually take their newfound love of dance and developed skills to other programs inside the studio, such as one of our competing teams. This program is great for the child who is exploring dance as their activity of choice.
