Observation: Observation of classes is welcome to parents, family, and visitors on the first lesson of the month for the last fifteen minutes of class.

Curriculum: Our instructors have years of dance training in all dance styles as well as dance teaching experience, and will teach both basic dance curriculum for age level, as well as the newest styles and techniques.
