Fall registration is now open!

Please note classes on this page are for the season (Sept-June). There are shorter session based and drop in classes offered throughout the year. Please see the DROP INS & SESSIONS page for details on those classes.

Take a look at our schedule and click the Login/Register button to be led to our online registration system.

Our schedule for the 2022-2023 season is for Recreational & *No Recital classes only.

Recreational classes are great if your student wants to perform on stage in the year end show. A costume is required but we try to be as reasonable as possible and find budget-friendly costumes.

Classes marked *No recital are just for training & will not participate in the year end recital. This is a great option for students who want to train just to improve, learn dance technique, and have fun without having to purchase a costume & learn a routine for the year end recital. New students can join these classes mid-season if there is space available. 

Competitive classes aren’t currently listed on our schedule. If your student is wanting the opportunity to compete, please contact us! With this being our first season it’s hard to know if there is a demand for Competitive classes yet. If there is enough demand Competitive options can be offered.
