Classes for Ages 7-15

At this age students have many class options to choose from and are learning more skills and technique than in the preschool and intro level classes. These classes require a longer attention span and students will have a warmup, technique drills, and choreography in every class. Some classes are geared toward the beginner student while others require some previous dance experience.
