Group lessons and private lessons are arranged to fit your schedule.

Ballet Classes

Tap dancing is noisy! It is the dance of America. We teach traditional tap and rhythm tap. Children love tap dancing . Their grandparents love  tap dancing . Learning new rhythms is fun.

Ballet is languid. Ballet is frisky. Ballet is relaxing . It soothes the spirit and improves posture. Ballet students begin at the barre and progress to the centre. French terminology is introduced in the first lesson. The students learn it naturally.

Every ballroom lesson is taught by a man and a woman. So whether you come alone or as a couple you are dancing with a teacher. This individual attention leads to faster progress.
