Wholesome, family friendly atmosphere.
Dancers are required to dress modestly. Our music choices are clean and age appropriate.
Competitive pricing. Discounts for families with multiple dancers. Beautiful recital costumes for great prices.
Excellent technique and training. Our program builds strong ballet, modern, and contemporary jazz/ hip-hop artists. We focus on the individual needs of each dancer. Whether a child desires to dance for fun, or train for a career in dance, our program encourages dancers of all aspirations.
We place particular emphasis on arts and dance composition. Composition trains dancers to explore and build their own work. Learn more about our trademarks by clicking here!
Small class sizes. Our classes “cap” at 12 dancers for ages 3-5 and 15 dancers grades 1-12. Some advanced classes may be larger due to leveling.
State-of-the-art facilities. Our 7000 square foot facility includes 4 beautiful dance spaces each equipped with mirrors, barres, viewing windows into every studio, state of the art sprung floors, and ample parking!
Progress reports. Parent/teacher conferences are held each spring. Students, parents, and instructors have the opportunity to discuss the dancer’s progress.
Qualified instructors. Many of our instructors currently dance with dance companies and/or have degrees in dance.
Focus on performance not competition. Our dancers have the opportunity to perform in the annual West-Metro community tradition, The Tales & Tails of Folks & Fairies, various faith-based dance productions, Elevate Youth Dance Festival, Cathedral Dance Festival and our spring Recital.
